For art & creativity
OTE Group’s advanced technological infrastructure and services promote our cultural heritage and contemporary artistic creativity. Our aim is to promote and develop a spirit that embraces culture, contributes to national prosperity, strengthens society and focuses on the individual.
In 2015, we supported numerous cultural events by utilizing our Group’s technological expertise and innovative products and services.
Initiatives we supported
“A Greek Island at the Gates of the East”
The Rhodes Archaeological Museum hosted the exhibition from the Louvre, featuring treasures from the island Rhodes.
Amongst other activities, COSMOTE created a mobile tour guide for the exhibition and covered transportation costs for 150 school students from remote villages to visit the exhibition.
Underwater excavation off the coast of Antikythera
COSMOTE continued its support for the underwater excavations at Antikythera, where it has equipped the island with new generation telecommunication infrastructure. The excavation was conducted by an international group of scientists from the Greek Department of Underwater Antiquities and the Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute from the US.
Restoration of the National Observatory of Athens
The Group’s technical staff was responsible for the restoration of the building that was erected in 1870, as well as the historic ‘Doridis’ telescope located at the Nymphs’ Hill in Thissio.
Visitors have the opportunity to observe and explore the sky and the planets, through the 113-year old telescope.
Contemporary cultural creativity at the Onassis Cultural Centre
We supported the Onassis Cultural Centre, staging more than 90 productions. COSMOTE, also, supported the ‘Digital Revolution’ interactive art exhibition hosted at the Onassis Cultural Centre, following the London Barbican Arts Centre and the Stockholm Tekniska Museum.
At the Athens Concert Hall Garden
For another year, in the heart of summer, COSMOTE sponsored the celebrated concerts held at the Athens Concert Hall Garden in the center of Athens, featuring famous artists.
