Institutul Cultural Roman (Romania)
Promoting Romanian Culture and Language through International Exchange
The institute's major goal is to increase the visibility, prestige and knowledge of Romanian values in today's world. Romania's strategic objectives are achieved through internal development actions, external political initiatives and cultural affirmation programs. Whatever the undertakings of the Romanian Cultural Institute, they represent a crucial complementary instrument for reaching these goals.
We consider culture a complex whole which includes knowledge, convictions, arts, morality, laws, customs and techniques acquired by a community, all these organizing its life and aspirations. Therefore, we naturally include in the culture represented by the institute in Romania and abroad literature, music, visual arts, sciences - starting with the economy and law and, of course, experimental sciences - architecture, philosophy and theological reflection. By so doing, we ensure a comprehensive integration of culture by the Romanian Cultural Institute on a contemporary level.
