30th anniversary of the foundation of the
Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus
By Heidi Trautmann
To celebrate the event artists have been invited to
participate in the activities around this important day. The TRNC is 30 years
young. There will be an exhibition with 18 Turkish Cypriot artists showing
their work in the Atatürk Cultural Centre in Nicosia from November 19 – 29;
viewing times are the governmental office hours.
The exhibition will be opened on November 19 at
18.30 hrs., followed by a concert with acclaimed musicians and singers at 19:30
hrs. The event is organised by the Ministry of Economy, Tourism, Culture and
Sports. I will attend and will report in the next issue.
The invitation distributed by the Ministry did not
contain the names of the musical performers, I learnt only much later their
names shortly before the concert, so I add them here now.
