Building Peace since 2003

For the last 20 years the AHDR has been creating magic in one of the most unexpected places - the ‘dead’ zone in Nicosia.

What has been an area surrounded by barbed wire and fences has become an incubator of children's laughter and lively discussions between people from all around the island.

Join us in celebrating the International Peace Day and AHDR’s 20-year anniversary of tirelessly working towards peace, as we choose not to lose hope and to keep on… imagining.

The event will include arts activities for children, a creative writing workshop for adults, a guided walk around Nicosia,

delicious food from our friends at Omni Honest Food, refreshing drinks from The Home Cafe and groovy tunes by the legendary Nostalgia Parties, that will make you remember the moves of Macarena in no time.

The event is co-organised by the AHDR and the Home for Cooperation.
