Honouring migrants and multiculturalism

For one afternoon, forget about borders and ethnic differences and celebrate multiculturalism. On December 18, international migrants day, meet and engage with each other in the diverse, colourful and active framework of the Agora Project.

Bridging community gaps and fighting social marginalisation, the Old Market of Nicosia will be open to celebrate the richness migration brings to lives and societies. In a festive environment, the Agora Project welcomes the public with activities for children, art installations, workshops and informative sessions on the reality of Europe and Cyprus.

Wanting to bring more people together from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds, the organisers open the event to everyone as they create a welcoming environment. And what better way for people to connect than with music and dance? Musical beats will set the mood while representatives from different organisations will be present information on their work and relevant projects.

And because no event is complete without some tasty treats, numerous stalls will be offering food from all the corners of the world.

The message the organisers hope to pass on? “A society that is united in its diversity is stronger, is more beautiful and is the key to fight against the negativity and the dark direction our world is taking.”
