Tree Mural Project. UTC is collaborating on this project with with Marina Neophytou and
Alden Jacobs of Visual Voices, a peacebuilding-though-art organization in Nicosia

and civil disruption the began with the civil war in 1974.

both sides of the country with the participation of a large number of members of the
wider community. The project was carried out in the Buffer Zone with the support of the
Cyprus Ministry of Culture and the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus
(UNFICYP), as well as private donors in the United States.
