Providing a haven for established and upcoming creators

The Residency Programme hosts artists, musicians, scholars and composers who have an opportunity to create new works in Cyprus and give lectures, workshops and masterclasses. The Pharos Arts Foundation is committed to providing a heaven for all established but also young and upcoming creators so they are enabled to produce new work in inspiring surroundings and thought-provoked by exciting artistic encounters.

The Foundation invites creators from abroad for residencies in Cyprus and gives opportunities to a number of young Cypriot composers, musicians and artists to interact with local audience, students and artists and to further their research and produce new works. Examples include, young British composer Emily Hall who had spent a month in Cyprus to complete her opera Sante, based on the Rwandan genocide, which was to be premiered at the Aldborough Festival in the UK; Russian writer and environmentalist, Ivetta Gerasimchuk, who introduced her work and award winning essay Dictionary of Winds, while writing The Blue Line – a short piece, dedicated to the Pharos Arts Foundation and inspired by the divided old Nicosia; composers Evis Sammoutis and Andreas Tsiartas, poet and writer Joachim Sartorius, visual artists Richard Wentworth, Mike Marshall, Joanna Jones, Laura Padgett, Marcos Grigoryan, to name but a few.
