Room for Art
Room for Art is a cultural NGO based in Nicosia (est. 2020), aspiring to promote the ideals of freedom, democracy, peace and mutual understanding and positive sustainable social change through art. Its main activities, cultural, artistic and life-long learning, provide individuals the opportunity to express creatively, acknowledge their potential and widen their perspectives in the areas of its members’ and collaborators’ expertise: Creative writing, visual arts, ceramic art, music/singing, graphic design, acting/drama etc.
Its members and collaborators bring decades of experience between themselves in formal, informal, and non-formal education settings and civil society matters. It is our firm belief that in the midst of global turmoil and angst, art and creative expression are the strongholds of our humanity.
Room for Art has accumulated, through its members and collaborators, abundant knowledge, experiences, and expertise, working with students in primary, secondary, and higher education. This collective experience constitutes an asset for Room for Art and its activities in the field of youth and adult education and training. Room for Art is committed to planning and implementing projects to engage, connect and empower individuals so they are equipped with the skills required for intercultural understanding and meaningful participation in democratic life.
Room for Art offers opportunities for lifelong learning and development through innovative methodologies in formal and non-formal settings aiming at maximizing the individual’s full potential. Through the initiatives planned and implemented by our organization, we aspire to create a framework where citizens will have the opportunity to express creatively, acknowledge their potential, and widen their perspectives.
