Cyprus based non-governmental organization TheatrEtc is implementing a summer youth camp in the Troodos mountains from the 28th July until the 6th August 2017. Young people between 18 to 25 years old are invited to participate!
What is Culture Shox!?
Culture Shox! is the name of a project co-designed and implemented by two organizations, Cyprus-based TheatrEtc and Danish organization DSI Swinging Europe, under the E.U. founded ERASMUS+ KA1 Youth Mobility and Learning Program. The project evolves around the development of activities in Cyprus and Denmark that allow the contact between individuals from a variety of backgrounds in an effort to learn from one another, confront stereotypes and misinterpretations of their realities and build bridges of communication, understanding, and acceptance. In the context of this project, the camp in the Troodos mountains is the first activity organised towards those goals, in an effort to build a connection between people arriving in Cyprus seeking a better life having fled their home countries and people who are based in their home countries through creative and artistic means and especially through theatre.
The camp will host a group of 28 young people that will consist of 14 individuals from Cyprus and Denmark and 14 individuals who have been displaced from their countries and are based in Cyprus seeking safety and asylum. They must fulfill all of the following criteria:
- Aged 18 to 25 years old;
- Interested or/and active in the arts (music, dance, theater);
- Interested in getting to know individuals from other cultural backgrounds;
- Good knowledge of English;
- Available to take part in the entire camp (10 days).
All the expenses for the camp are covered by the organizers (accommodation, food, transportation, workshop materials).
