On November 14, 2023, AKTI Project and Research Centre teamed up with Geroskipou B’ Elementary School to organize a captivating event dedicated to Cypriot tradition.
The occasion brought together 280 students, who actively engaged with the vibrant cultural heritage of Cyprus. AKTI orchestrated the festivities, ensuring the smooth participation of our network members, including the Geroskipou Adult Education Centre with 100 elderly participants, the Folklore Club Aphrodite of Geroskipou, the Sacred Gardens, Mpaxaropoleio and other local traders.
Various stations were set up at the school, each representing a unique aspect of the island’s tradition. Traditional dances, music, ceramic art, an exhibition of traditional costumes, and the famous delicacy “Must pudding” (Moustalevria) the event celebrated the richness of Cypriot heritage.
Our Tiganokinisi Barrel couldn’t be absent from the event, actively collecting used oil contributed by both children and attendees. The symposium served as a collaborative platform, fostering connections among different organizations, schools, and community groups. Through hands-on experiences and interactive displays, students delved into the intricacies of Cyprus’s cultural tapestry.
AKTI Project and Research Centre extends heartfelt thanks to everyone involved, as it was the collective effort that made this celebration an unforgettable experience for all!
