A night to remember!

The final event of the Art.Act.Distrupt project was a bang!

‘The Closing ARCT’ was held at the Gardens of the Future with a presentation of the project, delicious food and drinks from Patriko, performances from Nama Dama and the Team Hip Hop Collective Center, and a ton of good vibes! The event brought together people from the artistic community as well as representatives from civil society organizations. A huge thank you to everyone who made this a very special night!

The Art.Act.Distrupt project benefits from a grant under the Active Citizens Fund Cyprus programme, funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, through the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021.

Seen in public!

YEU Cyprus team was at the University of Cyprus Students Club Fun Day!

The UCY Fun Day was organized to bring together NGOs, companies and the students clubs of the university together. The event was packed with a wide range of activities for students to join!

Exciting Meet-ups!

This month the European Solidarity Corps volunteers met with two amazing guests: Fashion Heritage Network and Erman Dolmaci!

With the FHN, volunteers got to learn about the network’s efforts to preserve Cypriot cultural heritage through sustainable practices. In the meeting with Erman, the volunteers got the opportunity to discuss the intersections of gender, sexuality and environment. A huge thank you to our guests!

Introducing… Andri Koumidou!

“My journey with YEU started back in 2020 when I saw a post about a youth exchange in Berlin. That was it! Thankfully, I knew a couple of people from YEU who – after some months – asked me if I wanted to join the board. The answer was YES! YEU has offered me new friendships, so much knowledge, and various opportunities to travel and participate at projects. What’s my inspiration to keep being involved? My belief that YEU rocks and my willingness to help young people gaining such experiences as well!”
