The Cultural Movement EPILOGI is a non-profit organization, founded in November 1992 on the initiative of a number of people of culture who had a vision of contributing towards a society based on values and thus to a better World. EPILOGI was founded after mature thinking, to fulfil the need for a vibrant cultural life in the town of Limassol. The name “EPILOGI”, which in Greek means “choice” was given to the organization to express its aim of giving a choice to the audience of Limassol and Cyprus. Today, EPILOGI is the largest cultural NGO in Cyprus with over 250 members mostly under the age of 30, who are actively involved in its programs. The organization is governed by a 15-member committee that include prominent artists and activists from various fields of culture, all voluntarily working on daily basis towards a shared vision. It also has 6 members of staff that include Artistic Director, Executive Director, Chief Administration and Technical staff. EPILOGI Cultural Movement is a member of the Association of Limassol Cultural Organizations, and it is an associated member of Jeunesses Musicales International, while our Children’s and Youth Choirs are members of the European Federation of Young Choirs “EUROPA CANTAT”. Through international cultural exchanges, EPILOGI has had the opportunity to co-operate with choirs and other cultural institutions around Europe. Among our major supporters are Co-operative Savings Bank of Limassol, the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus, OPAP, Cyprus Youth Board and many others.
The mission of Epilogi is youth and community development through arts that is achieving through organizing permanent cultural programs, like choirs and ad hoc ones like concerts, festivals, youth camps and exchanges, youth orchestras and bands, seminars and symposiums about arts.
EPILOGI has been presented in the cultural life of Cyprus through its 4 choirs (Choral Workshop, Children’s Choir, Youth Choir and Mixed Choir), other musical performances, festivals and concerts, the yearly organized art competitions for young talents and various events dedicated to literature, thus covering an audience of over 10,000 people every year. The Committee led by the Chairman Mr. Costas Constantinou, along with the Artistic Director Mrs. Angelina Nikolaidou-Spanou, one of the most distinguished Cypriot choir-leaders, has put EPILOGI choirs on the spot of the international choral life. Our choirs have visited many European Countries and won international prizes, e.g. Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals at the Grand Prix St. Petersburg 2009 - III. World Choir Festival and Slovakia Cantat 2010 in Bratislava.
