People from both communities listened to the same music and had fun at the same time, thus showing they aren't so different after all.
Unique and different
Firstly, this is a huge wake-up call to those who believe that all the people from the opposite community are a threat and that all they want to do is kill them. By bringing this huge event in the heart of the problem, the most central part of the island's capital (which is by the way the only divided capital in the world) we got the interest of many people and especially teenagers,who were our target group. People realised that u know, i just heard a band playing and i liked it and they were turkish speaking cypriots,and I'm a greek speaking cypriot...! I headbanged with a guy next to me i didn't even know, turns out we like the same type of music,we could be friends!
The uniqueness of this idea is that it is the first bold project being done with bicommunal basis and actually working. It was done in the middle of Nicosia,easily accessible by anyone, without the fear of an alleged attack of nationalists etc.
The project plan is basically reviewing what went wrong and what can be improved because this project is now going to be made into an annual event...! After 6 months time,or less, we will start organising the sequel.
With various people and organisations, e.g some bicommunal organisations in both communities, some newspapers,some radio stations, the american embassy in Cyprus and many more. An ambassador also visited the concert!
