In 1993, I met Christian Kirsch in Munich at a Diplomatic Reception of the General Council of the Philippines. He introduced to me his idea of reviving the Delphic Games as a future platform for arts, culture and education – and I loved this proposal spontaneously. In 1994, I participated in the founding Assembly of the International Delphic Council (IDC) in Berlin. And in 2007, the National Delphic Council (NDC) Philippines hosted the III Junior Delphic Games in Baguio City. Finally, after 1619 years, the IV Delphic Games 2013 will be held at its place of origin in Delphi, Greece. The Games are coming home – organized by the IDC, with the strong support of the Hellenic Ministry of Tourism, and in cooperation with Greek partners. May these Games be held as a celebration of the arts! Divina Bautista President of the International Delphic Council (IDC) Co-founder of the IDC
