“Working together artistically unites people. It breaks down barriers and brings out the positive side of human nature. A finished art work which stands as living proof of this collaboration is a ‘gift’ with a message to us all” - Athena Ierodiaconou van Dongen - Unearthing My Past.
The workshops “UNEARTHING” are mainly for primary and secondary school pupils, art specialists and educationalists in all of Cyprus. The Art Project consists of 4 separate workshops using 3D and 2D techniques as well as language (performance poetry), providing the opportunity to work together, ask questions, listen, talk, understand and create whilst exploring the issues around identity and diversity.
The workshops are based on the personal project “Unearthing My Past” by Cypriot artist Athena Ierodiaconou van Dongen and will take place during the two weeks of her exhibition at the CVAR (October 15 - 29). Specific and small parts of her work will act as a platform from which participants can launch their own thoughts, discuss problems, ideas and CREATE! The work from all 4 workshops eventually comes together and will be curated as one exhibition which will be displayed during the last week of the exhibition.
The educational events taking place at the Museum comply with all COVID-19 measures under the guidelines of the Ministry of Health.
