A camp of many faces

The Crossroads VI Youth Camp, which will run in the village of Kampos in the Nicosia district from July 29 until August 7, gives young people from all communities on the island the chance to meet and learn from each other.

The camp, which is implemented by POST Research Institute and the Association of Historical Dialogue and Research and organised by the NGO TheatrEtc as part of the project Education for a Culture of Peace as a Vehicle for Reconciliation in Cyprus, is designed for young people from 15 to 18-years-old.

The camp’s activities revolve around theatre and applied theatre techniques, along with other expressive art forms. These artistic methods aim at creating a safe space for creative learning, democratic dialogue and mutual understanding and respect between young people from various communities in Cyprus.

All participants will take part in workshops led by skilled educators and facilitators who will use applied theatre methodologies, such as, devised theatre as well as dialogue and trust building activities. Participants will also have the opportunity to work with other expressive art forms through shorter visiting facilitators’ workshops (mask making, music, dance and others). The schedule also includes outdoor activities as well as a day trip to the ancient theatre of Soloi.

On the last day of camp, the participants will take part in a performance they devised during the workshops. The performance will be open to and free for the public.
