Home for Cooperation
The Goethe-Institut has been a great supporter of our efforts in building bridges between separated communities, memories and visions and has contributed greatly to bolster social change through arts and culture in Nicosia, Cyprus and the region.
Our most preeminent memories with the Goethe-Institut revolve around the Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival, one of our peacebuilding programs, challenging physical and artistic barriers, providing opportunities of interaction and promoting trust between different communities locally and internationally.
In this process of embedding creativity into a social process, the Goethe-Institut’s peacebuilding endeavours have been a source of inspiration for the Festival and for the Home for Cooperation. The long-lasting collaboration with the Institute, has always been crucial in increasing the Festival’s potential in reaching out to diverse groups in Cyprus, while supporting local and international artists with rehearsals, performance venues as well as providing an intellectual and creative space.
We truly appreciate our collaboration and the close relationship established with the Goethe-Institut over the years. We wish the Goethe-Institut a happy anniversary and are looking forward to strengthening our partnership in the near future through many more opportunities.
