The Festival

Respublika! is a one-week community media arts festival which will take place in Cyprus in 8 December 2017 – 16 December 2017. The festival will be simultaneously translated into an exhibition, which will run from 8 December 2017 – 12 January 2018, and will feed a series of seminars.

This multi-sited and multi-genre community media arts festival aims to tap into the creative reservoirs of community media organisations and their producers; their artists and collectives; and their community, social-oriented, cultural and artistic projects. The project will support the artists to use an artistic language with community media as a vehicle in order to:

1/communicate their perspectives on media democracy and its participatory component,


2/ to represent the democratic‐participatory nature and identities of community media.

Do check our call for applications should you wish to participate in the festival.
