Students visit Cyprus to study effects of culture capital role

4 July 2017

A group of 15 AUC students, led by Prof. Dr. Murray Pratt (Dean of AUC) and Dr. Pedram Dibazar (AUC lecturer and tutor), visited Cyprus for 10 days in June 2017 for the first edition of the course “Culture Lab”.

The course provided project-based and self-directed learning about culture and cultural festivals, European identity-building and the role of cultural interventions in addressing issues for cities and citizens within European contexts. The course takes the annual European Capital of Culture (ECC) event, and one of its host cities (for 2017 in Paphos), as its object of study.

The Cyprus Mail profiled the course while they visited, which you can read via the link below.
