In addition to the events featuring music, lectures, films and exhibitions that we organize at our branches or in cooperation with other institutions around the world, the HFC also runs programs that are either ongoing or are recurring annual events.
Μιλάμε Ελληνικά – We Speak Greek is the oldest of our programs. We teach Modern Greek at our branches in Alexandria, Belgrade, Bucharest, Odessa, Trieste, and in Alexandria we offer a program of Ancient Greek as well. In addition, all our branches serve as testing centers for the certification in Greek offered by Centre for the Greek Language.
TBF – Thessaloniki Book Fair – is an annual event that was established by EKEVI – National Book Centre of Greece – and that we are proud to carry on after the merging of EKEVI and HFC in 2014. TBF is an international book fair, first held in 2004 and every year since then. TBF hosts publishers from around the world as well as a wide range of cultural events around the city of Thessaloniki and has become a Thessaloniki cultural institution.
