Cultural Foundation Of Tinos

Tinos, the third largest island in the Cycladic Group, is located near Syros, Mykonos and Andros. It is not only the most important centre of pilgrimage of Hellenism, but also the birthplace of many great artists, such as Yannoulis Halepas, Nikiforos Lytras, Nikolaos Gyzis, Dimitrios Philippotis, Georgios Vitalis, Lazaros Sohos and others. Much of the island’s beauty lies in the numerous picturesque villages, which maintain their old architecture and traditional way of life.

The Cultural Foundation of Tinos (I.TI.P.) is housed in a newly restored neo-classic, three storey building, which lies on the island’s main port. The Cultural Foundation of Tinos provides both exhibition halls and a congress centre which offers an ideal venue for cultural and scientific conferences, seminars, lectures and discussions, as well as business meetings. The building is equipped with contemporary audio-visual systems, air conditioning, simultaneous interpretation systems in three languages, administrative support offices for conferences and work groups, as well as facilities for guests with special needs; it is fully computerised, comprising central microphone monitoring installation, Internet room and modern teleconference equipment. The conference halls have a capacity for up to 350 people.

In the Foundation’s library, you will find works concerning the History of Tinos, from the Prehistoric period (5000 B.C.) to Modern times, as well as books on Greek art and culture. The building includes a 190mC hall available for Temporary Exhibitions with modern lighting and equipment, free standing dividers, exhibition venue, fire protection systems, speaker-microphone installation, video phone and infrastructure for video relay linking with the rest of the areas. The I.TI.P. also houses a permanent exhibition of works of Tinos’ famous sculptor Yannoulis Halepas, on the second floor of the building. The centre’s cafe is an ideal spot for relaxing over refreshments while admiring the breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea. In cooperation with the best hotels of the island, the Centre can also arrange for excellent accommodation.
