Archive Launching at Cyprus High Commission, 13 St. James's Square London SW1Y 4LB

 

The mainland Greek and Greek Cypriot Migration outside Greece and Cyprus has been documented in audio, video and print using the modern electronic facilities and consists of original research outcomes of academics and lay people alike. Narratives of migrants’ lives, their letters and travelling documents, old photos and beloved belongings they brought from the motherland, alongside historical references and copies of previous research have been deposited at the Department of Archives and Corporate Records of King’s College London. The completion of the catalogue opens these archives to the public via the Internet and in more traditional methods. 

 

The launching of the archive is held under the auspices of the High Commissioner of Cyprus in the UK, Euripides L. Evriviades.

CULTURAL SECTION CHC UK

 

The Cultural Section of the Cyprus High Commission promotes Cyprus History and Culture in the UK.

 

We host, organise and support initiatives and events, and create collaborations with cultural institutions, educational bodies, and universities. Our primary aim is to engage the Cypriot community and the wider public in a dynamic cultural dialogue. To this end, we support cultural production by emerging artists in various forms of art (music, theatre, fine arts, film) by providing platforms to show their work and by facilitating their collaborations with international institutions.
