About K.A.G.


In November 2004, Phil and Francesca Harrison held a party in their garden in Kalamitsi. Phil is a musician and Francesca an artist, cook and imterior designer, and together with three friends, they provided some entertainment for the thirty or so guests. As a joke, they called the event 'The First Kalamitsi International Arts Festival'. The joke backfired somewhat, as people locally became more and more interested in the kind of shows that Phil & Francesca were able to organise. The 2004 party has led directly to the formation of Kalamitsi Arts Group, which now runs the dozens and dozens of events you will see listed elsewhere in this site.

Over the years, K.A.G. has created various sub-groups to deal with different areas. The Apokoronas Craft Guild exists to promote skill-sharing sessions and exhibitions of traditional crafts in the local area.

The overall aim is now to provide a year-round program of cultural and entertaining events, utilising the talents of both local people and invited visitors.
