Confrontation through Art has completed almost 20 workshops in art, drama and animation in all four villages around Cyprus and has the great pride and pleasure to exhibit all the artworks created by the children and youth of Solia, Lefke, Rizokarpaso and Athienou during the summers of 2015 and 2016, in one show:
Children at Artwork and Play
The Confrontation through Art program for children and youth, has brought together a plurality of program partners, particularly from the Solia and Lefke area, and the work done to bring the two regions closer through the applied arts workshops, is truly innovative.
The exhibition Children at Artwork and Play carries the multiple artworks, animation and drama videos, evidencing the creative workshops performed in each village, as well as in alternate common visits to Greek / Turkish Cypriot villages. Furthermore it is curated by the Cypriot artists-instructors who worked with the children: Antignoni Sofocleous, Sinem Ertaner, Zehra Sonya, Polly Flourentzou, Marilena Kyriakou, Fatma Giritli, Oya Akin, Ellada Evangleou, Stefanos Karampampas & Naz Atun.
