Fengaros Music Village 2017

27 July - 1 August | Kato Drys, Cyprus

Fengaros Music Village enters its fourth year with ten music, storytelling and architecture workshops as well as an artist residency. Artists from Cyprus, Greece, U.S.A. and England will instruct workshops, proposing alternative methods of learning and creating. The village of Kato Drys in the Larnaka District provides the ideal setting to host the workshops, lectures and concerts that take place in the framework of Fengaros Music Village. The workshops and lectures will take place daily during the morning and afternoon hours, while the evening concerts / workshop presentations, which are open to the public, will complete the daily schedule. 

Goals of Fengaros Music Village: 

• The implementation of educational, interactive workshops (masterclasses), instructed by artists of international caliber in the areas of modern and traditional creation. The themed sections of each workshop intend to approach the arts more broadly, yet effectively, whilst concentrating on original areas of artistic development.

• The encouragement of both organised and spontaneous performances executed by students and instructors.

• The productive exchange of ideas and experiences between artists, students and participants of varied backgrounds.

• The creation of a long-lasting hybrid, artistic community, characterised by solidarity, both in the fields of collective creativity and in the production / distribution of artistic work.
