CATSIX Connection 02

Art Display from Iacovos Loizou (mr kok) is a Nicosia based urban creative that works in hybrid territories of art and urban design. His paintings are characterised by the amalgamation of urban elements, text and faux-naïf figures.

CATSIX Connection 01

The concept of the event was to establish a creative location for artists and visitors in order to grab a coffee or an alcoholic drink and heal their ears, eyes and soul with unique beats and displays!

The first event took place on the 7th of June consisting of a groovy line up from Barking Cats (BillyD & Patsas) and an amazing Art Display prepared by Mr. Panayiotis Pasantas and Mrs. Evanthia Bloufa.

Urban Awareness 2022
Through the combination of art and the presentation of architectural, social and developmental research, our main objective was urban awareness of citizens which is necessary to achieve a creative, functional, sustainable and quality framework of life in the city. Some participants instead of exhibiting art pieces presented their work through videography. A projection room was available for the visitors to watch all the videos every one hour. While the exhibition was running, the outdoor space of the Venue was available for social drinking accompanied with Ambient & Minimal Techno music.
Social Awareness 2021
‘Social Awareness Project’ was a conscious collection of works of art, videos, etc. that addressed social issues aiming to raise awareness about equality, individualism, diversity, social acceptance, mental disorders, the environment, etc.

 

After a very difficult period for arts and innovative projects, we have managed to create an organic art community which will be actively contributive in a daily basis in our cities. This could have never been achieved without the trust and support of artists who delivered an impressive, conscious & professional outcome.

Terrace Project vol.2 / Laiki Geitonia
Afternoon Project Nicosia took the opportunity to explore Laiki Geitonia and created a rooftop gathering next to the square in order to promote the surrounding areas.
