PAOK funded in 1949 in Klirou targeting to engage youth in cultural and sports activities. Through the years PAOK enriched its activities with football team, traditional dancing group, theatre group, musical band and educational seminars. PAOK performs not only in Cyprus but also abroad in International Folklore Dancing Festivals.
They would like to develop an european project promoting cultural heritage (dancing, songs, music, traditional handicrafts and occupations). The idea is to implement Pan European Folklore/Heritage Festivals. Each partner will organize a folklore festival in its city/community and also will participate in others’ partners’ festivals.
Proposed activities: Dance performances, Traditional songs and music, presentation of traditional occupations, handicrafts trainings.
They would like to cooperate with all types of organizations, associations and public cultural institutions, folklore associations, cultural/handicraft centers etc.
