Fundrais­ing for bi­com­mu­nal cul­tural cen­tre

Cyprus Today - - LEISURE -

FUNDS are be­ing raised for a new bi­com­mu­nal cul­tural cen­tre in Derinya, re­cently con­nected to nearby Gaz­i­mağusa via the open­ing of a long-awaited bor­der check­point be­tween North and South Cyprus.

An event to gen­er­ate money for es­tab­lish­ing the cen­tre in a dis­used, do­nated garage was held on Sun­day when dance and craft work­shops were held, stalls sold lo­cal craft items and pro­duce, and live mu­sic was pro­vided by Veron­ica Alonefti and Christina Poly­car­pou, reg­gae and rock band Ado Kado and DJ Ra­dio Pangea. Vis­i­tors were also able to view an ex­hi­bi­tion or­gan­ised by the Derinya Municipality Artists’ Group.

Hande Cu­maoğulları, of the Mağusa Cul­tural As­so­ci­a­tion, said: “Peo­ple gath­ered to sup­port a very mean­ing­ful cause and have fun on Sun­day.

“Once con­verted, the old garage will be used for a wide range of bi­com­mu­nal events and ev­ery­one from both sides of the bor­der will be most wel­come.”
