Walking the streets of Nicosia and uncovering the numerous elements of different cultures that exist in the old city is at the core of an upcoming free guided tour. The Centre for Social Innovation is hosting a walk in English with animator Marios Ioannou on Sunday at 10.30am, welcoming all curious about Nicosia’s multiculturalism.
The morning walk will discover the monuments, the people and the narratives that combine to create the uniqueness of Nicosia. Marios is a teacher, scholar and activist who finds inspiration in the beauty of diversity and teaches about the necessity of openness to cultural understanding for the promotion of a culture of peace. Currently, he teaches in public elementary schools and at the University of Nicosia while he also holds a leadership role in the team that runs the social music project of Sistema Cyprus.
The meeting point for the walking tour will be Paphos Gate at 10.30am and the last stop the African House Restaurant where a light delicious lunch will be served. The event is taking place in the context of the project DIGIMI-DIGItal storytelling for Migrant Integration which aims to strengthen the sense of belonging to the new society for migrants and foster an active role for them in the community at local, regional and eventually national levels.
