Cyprus: event to celebrate the successful partnership between the European union and the bi-communal technical committee on cultural heritage in Cyprus

07.11.2013 To mark the successful partnership between the European Union and the bi-communal Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage an event will be held on Friday 8 November in Chateau Status in the buffer zone of Nicosia from 18:00 to 20:00.

Since 2012, EUR 4 million of European Union funds have been provided by the Commission to implement the priorities of the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage for the preservation of the island-wide cultural heritage in Cyprus. Following decisions by he committee, the works are implemented by the United Nations Development Programme's Partnership for the Future, in collaboration with the Advisory Board of the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage.

During the event, the European Commission, in partnership with the Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage and the United Nations Development Programme’s Partnership for the Future, will present the cultural heritage preservation projects that are setting a positive example of successful collaboration between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots in the field of cultural heritage.

The event will include a concert by a bi-communal chamber music quintet.

The EUR 4 million EU contribution has and will be used to carry out conservation and emergency support works on a number of cultural heritage sites; supporting ten Small Project Activities; and promoting awareness raising campaigns to sensitize the population in whole of Cyprus about the importance of preserving cultural heritage for future generations.

The selected sites for support under EU funding are part of a list of cultural heritage sites of great importance identified by the bi-communal Technical Committee on Cultural Heritage. The Technical Committe selected the sites based on an in-depth EU funded study carried out in 2010, which established an inventory of cultural heritage sites on the island.

EU funding for this initiative comes from the Aid Programme for the Turkish Cypriot community.

All Cypriot media is invited to attend.
