KALLIERGON, the individual cultural enterprise, was founded by Christina Tzialla and Vasiliki Kateri in November 2019, based in Neochori of West Mani in Peloponnese, in Greece. Their purpose is to lay additional, solid, foundations that will enhance the prospects of development through various activities related to art and culture services, giving new life and impetus to business activity and tourism in our country. One of the main principles is “Strength in unity”, so the enterprise aims to collaborate with other companies and institutions in Greece and abroad. Innovation through every action of the enterprise is a main element of the content, the process and the aesthetic approach.
The main areas of activity are productions, publications and a host of various cultural projects. The interaction and multiple combinations between these main areas of activity is a very interesting challenge, leading to the goal. Inventing, Organizing and curating cultural actions and seminars, as well as the provision of advertising services are some of the individual activities.
The name of the enterprise “KALLIERGON” is a neologism, a portmanteau of the Greek words “kállos” (beauty) and “érgon” (work). Together they refer to the betterment of spirit and aesthetics, a goal which in contemporary times ismuch sought-after and constantly redefined.
The depiction of the spiral in the logo of the company was chosen as a symbol that is contained and overwhelms every expression of matter... Life itself; From the electron spin to the swirling galaxies. It is the power of movement, evolution, perpetual search and thus the cultivation of the spirit, where it emerges and the improvement of the quality of man through the cultural becoming.
