24 Hour B&w Facebook Post 6

    The Nicosia International Festival invites professional artists (physical persons) of Cypriot origin or nationality and/or organizations (legal entities) operating legally in Cyprus to submit proposals for inclusion in the Nicosia International Festival 2024, which will take place from September to December. The Festival is co-organized by the Nicosia Municipality and Nicosia For Art, which run Nicosia’s bid for the European Capital of Culture 2030.

    Artists are invited to submit proposals for theatre, contemporary dance, and music performances to be held at the Nicosia Municipal Theater (main stage, rehearsal space, the open-air space at the side and at the front of the theater) and the Nicosia Municipal Garden, as well as proposals for the Festival’s Parallel Program.

    FESTIVAL PHILOSOPHY

    The proposals submitted should be in line with the philosophy of the Festival, which in turn is aligned with the long-term strategy of the Nicosia Municipality for culture and which includes the following objectives:

    1. To support and promote young professional artists and to showcase Cypriot talent of all ages. Starting from 2024, the Festival has established the #UNDER30 Program, exclusively addressed to artists under 30 years old, wishing to systematically support them in their first steps.

    2. To propose cultural actions aimed at acceptance and inclusion regardless of age, gender, colour, religion, sexual orientation etc.

    3. To propose a wide range of cultural and artistic expression aimed at raising awareness through audiences' contact with other cultures and social groups.

    For 2024, the philosophy of the Festival also includes the need:

    4. to present the diverse realities of illegal invasion and forced displacement,

    5. to argue the extent to which democracy is fragile or flexible and resilient,

    6. to give a platform to all nationalities and cultures living in Nicosia to showcase their history and culture, as well as their contemporary reality.

    Interested parties can read the terms of the open call and instructions for submitting proposals on the website: https://www.nicosia.org.cy/en-GB/news/nicosia-international-festival/2024/

    Proposals must be submitted electronically no later than Sunday 14 April 2024 at 11:59 p.m., through the link https://forms.gle/tPzHpR35FPyAqLdDA
