PROJECT


RestART - Empowering victims of domestic violence through art

RestART aims to empower victims of domestic violence through art.  Women victims of domestic violence in Cyprus, will participate in a series of interactive workshops during which they will be guided by art mentors, to explore the dimension of self- empowerment through arts and storytelling with the intent of transforming their personal narratives from victims of violence into advocates empowered for their own positive futures. Engaged in structured art activities led by local artists, the women will be inspired toward an understanding of personal and societal forces contributing to their relationships with the world and will articulate these insights through arts raising awareness and encouraging dialogue to inspire positive social change.  At the same time the project will engage with civil society capacity building through various activities including a good practices seminar indented to train both art mentors directly involved in the project as well as civil society organizations’ staff and volunteers working with vulnerable groups. Thus, the project has a strong focus on the empowerment of vulnerable groups and capacity building of civil society in Cyprus. 


The Active Citizens Fund (ACF) in Cyprus is supported through a €1.5m grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway under the EEA and Norway Grants 2014-2021, aiming to contribute to reducing economic and social disparities and strengthening bilateral relations and cooperation between the beneficiary states and the donor states. ACF Cyprus recognises the fundamental role the civil society sector plays in ensuring democratic governance, human rights and social cohesion and focuses on the following two main objectives: strengthening civil society and active citizenship and empowering vulnerable groups in Cyprus.


The Fund Operator for the Active Citizens Fund in Cyprus is the NGO Support Centre in consortium with GrantXpert Consulting. For more information, visit www.activecitizensfund.cy
