We are proud of all of our projects!
But let me describe our latest project that took place in a forgotten neighborhood of Nicosia, Kaimakli.
Urban Gorillas in collaboration with the Kaimakli residents have organized Pame Kaimakli festival, 2018 edition, with the theme "Adopt an Artist".
We have asked Kaimakli residents to adopt an artist in their private spaces and present their works during the festival.
Old Kaimakli became an open gallery, and a hub of creative and social actions. Residents of Kaimakli hosted the works of local and international artists, "adopting an artist" and co-curating exhibitions, installations, and happenings in homes, shops and social spaces of the neighborhood.
During a week of events, the residents have been actively engaged in the whole process of the festival. Societal ties grew stronger and cultural/art projects were made accessible to crowds that are not the usual suspects of the cultural scene of the island.
