Acropolis park in Nicosia will give young people the chance to get informed about special programmes aimed specially at them and for them to get involved.
Under the name Up to You(th), the third youth festival, organised by the Youth Board of Cyprus, will see representatives from 65 non-profit (NGOs) organisations take part because the board knows that the future lies in the hands of the next generation. These NGOs will talk to all those present about the programmes they run to support young people.
There will also be lots of fun to be had with a cosplay competition, a chance to get to know other people’s stories with a human library, live science experiments and a screening of a short film made by local artists in cooperation with Geekotopos. All present can also try their luck in a treasure hunt, view works of art, play some board games and also dance around. There will also be a book swap, so bring any books along that you no longer want.
No festival is complete without music, and music there will be in the form of the local blues-rock band Black Anis.
