Let’s Share Nicosia / Treasure Hunt - Selfie Contes

Saturday 19.10.2019, 10:30 -13:00

The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, in tune with the beginning of the new school year, organizes a broad range of educational programmes and activities that fall within the successful institution that this year bears the special title “Month of Educational Programmes – 30 Years of Lifelong Learning”. Prominent among the range of educational actions is “Let’s Share Nicosia”.


The action will take place on Saturday 19 Octoberbetween 10:30-13:00, with the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia as starting point.


So, what does it mean –“Let’s Share Nicosia”?


“Let’s Share Nicosia” is an action taking place in the framework of the European Programme Erasmus+ Digital invasions for the promotion of cultura lheritage (DIGINV) (www.digitalinvasions.eu). The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, the historical museum of the capital city and a substantial cultural entity, boasts active participation in the programme. DIGINV aims to activate and valorize the cultural interest of citizens through the use of technology, particularly social networking media, in order to promote a country’s cultural sites by way of organized digital interventions, dubbed “Digital Invasions”. The network includes partners from Italy, Cyprus, Belgium, Malta, Croatia and Hungary.


The organized educational action “Let’s Share Nicosia” invites the public to take part in a cultural treasure hunt against the backdrop of Nicosia of yesterday and today. Individuals, groups and families with children are invited to discover and take selfies to share emblematic cultural points from the capital’s historic centre. Seven historical photographs from the Archive of the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia will provide the clues to the search within the city. The Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia will be both the point of departure and final destination. The selfie that garners the most ‘likes’ will receive an award.


The action proposes a different tour of the city of Nicosia, intended to emotionally involve the public to discover aspects of the city and to identify the past with the future. Recording the participants’ experience through selfies posted on social media enables the dissemination of aspects and views of Nicosia that can only be rendered through personal involvement and emotions. 


“Let’s Share Nicosia” is an initiative of the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia in which the following institutions also participate: Pierides Museum – Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation; Foundation of Cultural Creativity for Children and Youth, Larnaka; Hadjigiorkis Flourmills Museum and Theatro Tsepis. The Cyprus network  is coordinated by the Cyprus Computer Society.


The action is materialized with the support of the Nicosia Tourist Development Company of the Deputy Ministry of Tourism.
