Olive thee blessed tree

“Olive The Blessed Tree”

by the Khytera Cultural Association, Greece.

The Kythera Cultural Association, in collaboration with the Municipality of Kythera, is organising in April 2016 an open submission photographic exhibition entitled Olive, the Blessed Tree. The subject is every aspect of the cultivation of the olive tree and the production of olive oil on Kythera, which represent not just an important source of revenue but also a deeply rooted tradition, contributing significantly to the cultural identity of the islanders. We call upon all Kytherians, part-time residents, visitors and friends of the island to help us assemble an in-depth record of this activity, including the planting, cultivation, gathering and pressing of the olives.

Selected photographs, together with older documentation of historical interest, will be included in a group exhibition inaugurating the 2015 Cultural Activities Program for Kythera & Antikythera. One of the photographs will be awarded the KytheraMunicipality prize, while the Cultural Association will also offer prizes for the best contributions by schoolchildren.
