Topophilia II

Phaneromenis70 is pleased to announce a series of actions titled Topophilia II and our participation in the first festival of the New European Bauhaus with the support of the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre, the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education, and the Nicosia Tourist Board.

The festival of the New European Bauhaus aims to bring people together to discuss the building of a sustainable and inclusive future through interdisciplinary collaboration. It is an initiative organised by the European Commission, with presentations and actions taking place across Europe for the month of June. The thematic concerns of the New European Bauhaus resonate with the values of Phaneromenis 70, with Topophilia II being our first participation in this network of change.

The programme includes workshops, discussions, walks, and art presentations about the coexistence of nature and culture in Nicosia. Our events will unfold between the 9th and 21st of June, with activities focusing on the historical evolution of the city, its urban ecology, and its potential future condition.
