Hosting the biggest European cultural initiative is a great honor for the city of Pafos. The institution is both a source of motivation as well as an opportunity for Pafos and the broader area. The Organization Pafos2017 and its mission to bring to life the programme of the Open Air Factory is a stepping stone leading the city to new paths, mindsets and experiences. It’s an open invitation addressed to the artists, the citizens and the visitors of Pafos to come together and to co-create in different projects and networks. This will bring together different cities, countries and cultures, just like the motto “Linking Continents-Bridging Cultures” suggests.
