The Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation was conceived in the mid 1980's as a means to promote and preserve Cypriot history and culture. Its collections and activties cover a wide array of topics, including archaeology, moden history, the arts and literature.
Beyond its chief functions, - supporting research on archaeology, organising exhibitions and events and holding educational programs - the Cultural Foundation strives to keep up with the times and is accessible to the wider public.
In the summer of 2016, the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation opened to the public and to art and music buffs while at the same time preserving the historical value of the premises. Bedecked with artists’ works as well as graffiti inspired by the collections it hosts, the Foundation’s grounds hosted arts events, free of charge to the public. Dubbed “Faneromeni 16,” the series of events featured jazz and rock concerts, dance soirees and motion picture classics.
