The Island Club is a non-profit exhibition space initiated by artist Christodoulos Panayiotou. Located in Agora Anexartisias — a shopping arcade built in 1991 in the commercial centre of Limassol —, The Island Club appropriates the name of the NAAFI (Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes) family club that was established during colonial times in order to provide entertainment for the members of the British Armed Forces. As access to the club was restricted to servicemen and their guests, it is now largely forgotten.
