Due to the serious COVID19 pandemic in our countury we decided to postpone our first activities in the center until the situation gets better. Some of our first defined art workshops for the local youth will be: Murali workshop, juggling workshop and photography workshop.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to know more about our Center and its activities during this year.
