Cyprus Singing Tree Of Peace

The Cyprus Singing Tree of Peace is the Year 1 mural of the five-year Cyprus Singing 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


The Cyprus Singing Tree Mural Project includes people on both sides of the divided island working to create a networking of peacebuilding and address the deep wounds and civil disruption the began with the civil war in 1974. The Cyprus Singing Tree of Peace was created by a Lead Design Team of artists from 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.

The mural is installed on an exterior wall of the UNFICYP headquarters in the Buffer Zone.
