The Delphic Games for Arts and Cultures revived in 1994 with the founding of the International Delphic Council (IDC) in Berlin, organised by Mr. J. Christian Kirsch.

The cultures do not enter into a competition but showcase their respective arts. They learn from each other by conversing, getting together and treating each other with mutual respect.
