W e l c o m e... to Kalamitsi Arts Group

 the organisation and promotion of creative events in western Crete


Kalamitsi Arts Group is organised by Francesca and Phil Harrison

They gratefully acknowledge the enormous help they receive from friends who are more than generous with their time and energy and without whom K.A.G. events would not be possible.

For anyone involved in the performing arts, the recent past has been particularly difficult. We have been presenting live events here in west Crete since 2004, but last year were forced to stop completely. Now at last we have been able to tentatively start up again, with our Spring Treasure Hunt taking place on May 3oth and a two-day trip to Milia Mountain Village this week (14-16 June). We have a full program of Garden Events for the summer ('Friends of K.A.G.' only) plus public events including a concert by Ross Daly & Kelly Thoma, Maria Manousaki & Phil Harrison live at the Crete Botanical Garden and a 'Beatles' evening in Fres. Our friend the poet Roger McGough will be joining us in September for readings and a workshop. Other events are in the pipeline, including a Christmas panto!

        On  a regular basis, K.A.G. presents

Concerts • Exhibitions & Open Studios 
Workshops • Film Nights  • Talks  • Poetry Readings
 World Cuisine evenings  • Arts and Crafts Fairs

There is a general outline of all these events on the 'Activities' page


It's more than fun, it's fundamental...
