Date: 2022.07.12
This year’s Xarkis Festival, focused around colonisation and intersectionality, will take place in Agros, Cyprus between 15 and 17 July.

Former MOME Jewellery Design MA and Design and Visual Art Teacher MA student Patrícia Harsány and former MOME Product Design MA student Nelli Szabó were selected for the event’s residency programme for their project ‘Wall of Allegories’, a locations-specific installation reflecting the social and historical past of the local micro community. 
Preparations are currently underway in Cyprus, and the completed installation will be presented at workshops. The three-day event series encouraging creative participation will also feature interactive games, performances, concerts and screenings in addition to workshops.
