The establishment of the Athanasios Ktorides
Foundation gives substance to a basic vision: the creation of an
original cultural space which will “communicate” with its visitors
through the activities and programmes it presents. It will give them the
opportunity to experience the history and culture of Cyprus and Greece
in a unique way. It will prove in practice that a cultural space can be
a “living cell” of cultural creation and expression. It will attract
people of different ages and with a variety of interests, by hosting
artistic activities such as music, visual arts and festivals, which will
reinforce its multi-dimensional character.
The Athanasios Ktorides Foundation is involved in
cultural and educational activities, through the development of research
programmes that identify and highlight the role of Greek and Cypriot
civilization in education, through the promotion of literature and the
love of books, and through the recording, preservation, projection,
propagation and promotion of the treasures of Greek and Cypriot Folk
The foundation does its utmost to spread Cypriot
and Greek cultural heritage, to raise awareness and enlighten all
concerned (competent authorities, cultural organizations, groups of
citizens, etc) and to facilitate the transfer of experiences and
knowledge in the field of civilization.
It collects heirlooms and relics concerning the
history, art and every other activity of the nation.
