Creating a Beautiful School / No More Vandalisms (in progress)

RATIONALE & SHORT DESCRIPTIONOur school is located in the west suburbs of Limassol, in Pano Polemidia, where many Greek Cypriot refugees have been staying after the 1974 Turkish invasion. It is an area troubled by vandals. The school building has been damaged repeatedly over the last years. Students felt excited last year when we begun decorating some some of the school walls and noticing that the vandalisms became less. For some reason the vandals would leave the children's wall paintings intact. Having in mind the fact that students are eager to meet and work with real artists, after our last years' visits to workshops, studios and galleries, we decided to undertake our Crearte Partnership working along with the artist Julia Georgiadou, to continue this great effort to fight vandalism with art and creativity.TEACHER: ANASTASIA KAPARIARTIST: JULIA GEORGIADOU
