PHOTOGRAHY & HIV: Then & Now
Photography Workshop with Logan Bellew
The political, social and emotional role of theatre, literature and photography significantly altered the course of the epidemic and how people live with HIV globally. The goal of this workshop is to utilize this historical framework as a launching point for creating photographs that address contemporary social issues of Cyprus and its citizens, including HIV/AIDS.
During the Photo-Workshop, which is organized within the cooperation of the HIV/AIDS Solidarity Movement and Veramand.com, participants will learn about and employ contemporary modes, methodologies, and technologies related to image making including Instagram and the impact they have on political, artistic, and social activism. Participants must bring their smartphones with them.
The workshop is open to everyone but limited with max. 15 people, so please call and book your place. There is no fee and the instruction will be in English.

THURSDAY LIVE AT HOME
There was a German, a Scott, a Welshman and a Cypriot .. It begins, rather like the joke goes .. And then another Cypriot came along. Instead of becoming a joke they formed a band. They live in Pera but want to go further, and further and so had no choice but to name themselves #Parapera (means beyond beyond).
By playing, parapera explore the common ground that lies beyond labels. They believe that the world is not "this or that" but "this and that and something else".
