Pharos Arts Foundation

The Pharos Arts Foundation is a non-profit cultural and educational foundation based in Cyprus dedicated to the promotion of the arts and humanities. The Pharos Arts Foundation aims to promote artistic excellence by bringing audiences in Cyprus into contact with some of the most exciting and talented musicians and artists on the Cypriot and international scene.

The Pharos Arts Foundation has established a world-wide reputation for its commitment to excellence and for promoting classical music in Cyprus, having presented more than 500 concerts over the past fifteen years. Outstanding musicians are hosted in the Pharos Arts Foundation's Concert Series and the annual International Chamber Music Festival, with programmes ranging from ancient to contemporary. The recent acquisition by the Foundation of a beautiful harpsichord made by O' Brien and Bandini in Italy, will also give us the opportunity to present more Baroque music.

The Pharos Centre for Contemporary Art (PCCA) presents the work of major international artists. A variety of contemporary art forms are included in the Centre's programme - visual, performance, photography, video - as well as lectures and discussions. Exhibitions are in many cases individually curated by internationally recognised curators from all over Europe.

The Pharos Arts Foundation also has education, music education and visual arts programmes, as well as lecture series and more.
