ASPIRE HOPES TO CREATE A WORK OF ART FOR PAPHOS

Students come up with artistic ideas Students come up with artistic ideas

Students at ASPIRE will be submitting a proposal to take part in Pafos2017's artistic programme.

Mrs Hadjiyiakoumi, Principal of the school, introduced the organisation’s open call for submissions during Friday’s assembly.

Pupils were then divided into their Houses before being encouraged to come up with ideas.

The proposal, for an original design, event or activity, needs to fit Pafos2017’s main idea of Open Air Factory and its motto ‘linking continents, bridging cultures’.

Ideas also need to fall within a particular category: myth and religion, travellers of the world, or steps of the future.

The school now has until 31st July to turn its ideas into one suitable proposal.

All submissions will be evaluated by a committee set up by the European Capital of Culture and will include the organisation’s Artistic Director as well as recognised individuals from the world of art.

The chosen ideas will then be brought to life and take place between September 2014 and the 31st December 2017.
