The ARTos Foundation

The ARTos Cultural and Research Foundation was founded by the artists Achilleas Kentonis and Maria Papacharalambous. It is a contemporary arts and science center dedicated to research and creativity; two magical worlds of adventure and discovery, encompassing sojourns into the fields of learning, chaos and imagination. It functions as a multidimensional space, organizing and undertaking the production of multifaceted events from the world of theatre, music, dance, cinema, visual arts, letters and sciences.

ARTos aims to attract and challenge the contemporary artist/creator as well as the scientist/researcher, both of whom, through their eternally-inquisitive and unsatisfiable nature, question and doubt, always striving to go one step further. ARTos, is as pace where creative ideas grow and develop.

Through the Foundation, artists, thinkers, writers, scholars and researchers are able to:

  • co-exist and creatively interact with each other;

  • gain valuable experiences through meeting other personae of various specialties from the world of Arts and Letters from both Cyprus and abroad;

  • utilize their potential and establish, improve and advance their ideas;

  • participate in various cultural and research programmes (European and others);

  • receive guidance as to the better presentation of proposals through the vast network of Foundation associates and contributors in both Cyprus and abroad;

  • make use of the management/organizational structures and processes provided by the Foundation.


The center frequently hold film events and workshops and is involved in the annual Cyprus Film Days.
