These activities are funded by the European Union and supported by UNDP-PFF under the Call for Proposals for Innovative Cultural Activities in the northern part of Cyprus.
The Call aims to build stronger cultural communities in selected towns and villages in the northern part of Cyprus where infrastructure and urban upgrading works had previously been realized.
Since 2001, the EU-financed UNDP-Partnership for the Future Programme has been working in Cyprus to support the economic and social development of the Turkish Cypriot Community through community development, rehabilitation and infrastructure projects in the walled cities of Nicosia and Famagusta as well as in 10 villages and small towns in the northern part of Cyprus. The aim was to improve the quality of life of the residents, make the cities more attractive for both residents and visitors, while preserving the important cultural and urban heritage of the island. All projects will be completed in September 2013.
To complement these projects, on 19 December 2012, UNDP-PFF launched a Call for Proposals for Innovative Cultural Activities to be organized in locations where urban upgrading projects had previously been implemented. The Call was open to not-for-profit organizations based and registered in Cyprus.
The general objective of the Call was to support the residents and local communities of the renovated areas in hosting and promoting innovative cultural programmes that are linked to Cypriot cultural traditions but at the same time propose innovative approaches that promote social inclusion and community participation.
The villages where the activities are taking place are:
The activities selected under this call started in April 2013 and will continue until end of September. We will post a new calendar of events monthly to keep you posted!
