Nature and Purpose of Agency
The Greek Cultural Center offers productions in theater, music,
folk dance, shadow Puppet Theater, and workshops for all ages. They
strive to ensure that each member of the Greek American community
has the opportunity to express themselves creatively through their
own inclinations and aptitudes, be educated and informed about
culture, and explore their roots and traditions. Every member of
the Greek American community has the chance to learn through the
arts, reinterpret traditional themes from a contemporary
perspective, and understand the position of their language and
Hellenic identity, while strongly encouraging the exchange of art
and culture with other ethnic groups within the diverse community
of New York. The GCC's activities are continuously enriched and
improved to better reflect the needs of our community, as well as
maintain the educational and social value of art in society.
