Our very own volunteers
This is a group of people that has been spreading dynamically in Pafos since 2012, when all the cities of Cyprus fought for the title of the European Capital of Culture. In 2017 the Pafos2017 volunteers assumed an active role in Pafos2017 Organisation and are always next to the Pafos2017 team at all levels, responding to all calls.
Since 2016, Lanitis Bros and Coca-Cola, Sponsors of the Volunteers Programme, share the passion of the volunteers’ team and actively support this effort. Wanting to reward and enhance the participation of volunteers, Lanitis Bros and Coca-Cola organised a summer party in their honor on Sunday, September 3rd 2017.
This month, 6 volunteers from Japan will join the volunteers programme. With the support and cooperation of the Cultural Organisation EU-Japan Fest Japan Committee, they will be accommodated at the homes of other volunteers of Pafos2017. For 2 weeks, they will work together with the artists involved in the creation of the 1st Myth and Sculpture Park at Geroskipou.
At the same time, the European Capital of Culture – Pafos2017 – a bridge between peoples and countries – hosts representatives from the European Capital of Culture Novi Sad 2021. Among others, the Coordinator of the Volunteers Programme of Novi Sad 2021 and Mayumi Taniguchi – volunteer’s representative of the organisation EU-Japan Fest Japan Committee – are in Pafos, in order to co-organise a programme for the exchange of information and experiences on volunteering on an international level.
Our volunteers continue to stand by the institution, to be an example in society and to have a special place in our hearts.
