The Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR), located on Ermou Street in the heart of the walled city of Nicosia, opened in 2014. The CVAR is home to the Costas and Rita Severis collections, which include paintings, antique costumes and memorabilia related to Cyprus and its neighbours. The CVAR also houses a library and research centre whose over 5,000 volumes are available to scholars and casual readers alike. In its café and roof garden, the CVAR screens films and slide shows. On the ground floor, the CVAR hosts a wide range of activities, workshops and seminars supported by the Foundation and its partners to promote understanding and peaceful coexistence.

Come to CVAR for a walk through history and experience the magnificent views described by travelers and visitors centuries ago! From CVAR’s unique and historic location, visitors can admire the tiled roofs, the historic palm trees, the countless churches, mosques and monuments of old Nicosia—all with the Pentadaktylos as a breathtaking backdrop.

For schools The Centre for Visual Arts and Research is providing educational programs and activities for students in both primary and secondary school. For the 2015-1016 year there are two programs running: Travelers –Tourists and Cyprus under Ottoman rule. These are specially formulated for children, young students and families, in order to promote learning through the Arts and to help bring out the creative qualities of children.
