Tellalis is where you can discover people to materialize your creative ideas. We democratize the interaction between people in order to produce faster quality results. We allow individuals and enterprises to access creative talents, such as designers, artists, photographers, and manufacturing professionals such as suppliers, craftsmen, to reinforce those ideas into matter.


This is your biggest opportunity to mix with the industry's leading thinkers. Tellalis team sets out to create something different for 2014. An initiative fully devoted to exploring the mechanics of idea execution. We bring together some of the most productive creative visionaries, leading researchers, traditional craftsmen and young spirits to share pragmatic insights on how to make your ideas happen.


The main objective of the festival is to both stimulate and revive Makarios Avenue by boosting entrepreneurship, either through commercial activity or through innovative services, and capturing the energies or new talents. The initiative is supported by Nicosia Municipality, curated by Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre.

Agenda We come to celebrate based on three axes: Exchange, Materialize, Learn .
An opportunity for everyone to connect and explore the emerging intersections of creativity, technology and entrepreneurship
