Over two days of April 22 and 23, the Centre of Visual Arts and Research in Nicosia welcomed 160 schoolchildren from the public schools of both the Southern and Northern parts of the island who took part in the educational sessions organized by BE OPEN Foundation dedicated to Cyprus Handcrafted Heritage.
