Our Mission

Promoting Cultural and Educational Exchange between Cyprus and the United States of America

Why a Friends of Cyprus Association?

“Friends of Cyprus” formalizes an already existing group of persons connected with the island country of.Cyprus by ethnic affiliation or by interest in and support of its rich cultural heritage in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.region

The group, in conjunction with the Honorary Consulate of Cyprus, Atlanta, has organized activities featuring Cypriot culture and its relevance to the American community. For example, in 2017, a shadow puppet show, Karagiozis, performed at the Atlanta Puppetry Arts Center, as the first ever Atlanta—Cyprus Tour!
