BREAK DOWN THE WALLS
Graphic Stories openly invited our fellow citizens to actively participate in the interactive installation with the theme “Break Down the Walls!”, as part of the 7th Conference proceedings in 2021.
The installation was a virtual wall that was designed in such a way that people could leave their own message and express how they felt during the difficult period of confinement and the pandemic. With this project we wanted to encourage the common people, the citizens of Cyprus to break their inner walls, in a creative way of expression and to capture their thoughts and feelings. The participation of the people who, despite the difficult conditions, attended the inauguration and visited the wall to record their message was touching.
The inauguration of the installation was performed by the Municipal Councilor of NicosiaMr. Chrysanthos Fakas, on behalf of the Honorable Mayor Mr.Constantinos Yiorkadjis, on Saturday, May 22, 2021, in the open amphitheater of the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, in Faneromeni.
During the opening, a video screening of the artworks of our 5th International Poster Exhibition was held, with the homonymous theme as well as a live performance by a contemporary dance group. Through dance and movement we wanted to express the reaction to the immobilization of the life of all of us, during the period of confinement.
As an organizing committee we would like to thank everyone for their participation as well as all those who contributed to its realization.
