The Delphic Games celebrate six art categories namely, Musical Arts and Sounds (singing, instrumental music, electronic sounds), Performing Arts (dance, theatre, circus, puppetry), Language Arts (literature, poetry, moderation), Visual Arts (painting, graphics, sculpture, installation, fashion, photography), Social Arts (communications, Internet, media, pedagogic, didactic) and Ecological Arts & Architecture (urban planning, landscaping, preservation and conservation of nature, monuments). The cultures do not enter a competition but showcase their respective arts & customs. They learn from each other by conversing, co-creating, co-learning, and treating each other with mutual respect.The International Delphic Council is a voluntary, not-for-profit, non-political, non-religious, non-sectarian global movement for arts & cultures; with the aim of fostering engagements in the various arts forms amongst people of different races and cultures through the world’s only common floor for the arts called the Delphic Games.The Delphic Games were born in ancient Greece 2500 years ago as the twin-sister of the Olympic Games.
They are to Arts & Cultures what Olympic Games are to physical sports. The Delphic Games of the Modern Era were revived in 1994, while the Olympic Games were revived in 1894. India has participated in 3 editions of the Delphic Games in various Countries and even won gold and silver medals in South Korea and Malaysia. The Culture Ministry of Government of India has participated in the process by sponsoring the artists to represent the Country through the Zonal Cultural Centres. Since revival, the Delphic Games have been hosted in Georgia, Russia, Malaysia, South Korea, Philippines, Germany, and South Africa while other festivals of cultural significance have been organised elsewhere in the world. International Institutions like UNESCO, Council of Europe, ASEAN, and such, have endorsed the various editions of the Delphic Games at various times.World leaders including their Excellencies Nelson Mandela (South Africa), Mikhail Gorbachev (erstwhile Soviet Union), Helmut Schmidt (East Germany), Eduard Shevardnadze (Georgia) as well as Celebrated Musicians, Painters, Academicians, Pedagogues, Historians, Arts & Culture revivalists, and the like, have supported the Delphic Games and what they stand for.
