Efi Savvides and Kyriaki Costa, two female artists, give us a taste of life as they experience it in Cyprus today and present it through their artistic work. Their modes of expression differ, but both show strong ties to traditions people have themselves created or as they experience them today.

Sounds good, but what does this really mean?
Going to the gym on a regular basis and staying healthy, seeing your children and grandchildren

Getting older is not the same today as it was for the generations of our parents and grandparents.
Today we are facing new challenges caused by technological, medical and societal changes in the past decades. Not only will we have an increasing number of elderly people, but it is already a fact that we remain more active and live longer. This again has an impact on today’s society. People would like to live as long as possible independently at home – we want to be amongst others and be an active part of everyday life.
