Tsavliris Cultural Foundation - 2015 Sep 10

The Tsavliris Cultural Foundation is dedicated to the spiritual and artistic creation of our times, in accordance to the vision of its Founders: Nicolas, George and Andreas Tsavliris. The Foundation was established in Cyprus in September 2015 to commemorate 100 years from the birth of the founding father of the Tsavliris Group, Alexander G. Tsavliris.

The aim of the Tsavliris Cultural Foundation is to support and promote education, culture and the arts.  It focuses particularly on the creative work of individuals in the fields of literature, visual arts, music, theatre, history, archaeology, folk art and tradition.

Its philosophy is reflected in its logo, an impression sketch of an ancient Cypriot Oinochoe (wine jug), that bears on its outer surface the depiction of a ship. The original Oinochoe on which the logo is based is displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The combination of a ceramic vessel and a ship symbolises the ancient journey of the Hellenic civilization and its ecumenical nature. Just as the ancient triremes carried the goods of culture to the four corners of the then known world, the Tsavliris Foundation continues the same journey today transporting the modern goods of Hellenic civilisation to today's world.
