Join us on Sunday 25 February 2018 at 10:00am at the Mandra tou Kambiou picnic site at Mahairas Forest for a different day in nature! What will we do? Our fourth creative mapping workshop and picnic*!

Forget maps as you know them! The workshop begins with a short presentation of the creative mapping methods and presents some examples. Following this introduction to creative mapping, you will have the opportunity to explore nature around you, activating your senses to create your own creative map based on your experience! What shape will your map take? Will it be three-dimensional, will it capture textures, will it be in video form? The possibilities are endless…

Once you finish your map, you can submit it to take part in the ‘Wild for nature’ competition, for your opportunity to win prizes worth over 1500 euros and to take part in a competition with the winning and most interesting submissions! Don’t worry if you don’t complete your map at the workshop – you can perfect it before you submit it to us (the submission deadline is 30/3/18). You can register to take part at the workshop individually or as a group. Once we finish our mapping we will have a picnic to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the area!

Have you been waiting for the perfect opportunity to explore nature? Here it is! We can’t wait to see nature through your eyes and your other senses! All the information on the competition is available here: wildfornature.birdlifecyprus.org

For registrations (by 22 February): 22455072 or natalie.stylianou@birdlifecyprus.org.cy

Participation is free but is on a first come first served basis, due to a limited number of places. Registration is obligatory. Participants must follow a code of practice which promotes respect towards nature in order to not cause disturbance in the areas the workshops are held.

*Participants are responsible for bringing their own food and drink at the picnic.

The event is taking place within the framework of the 'Wild for nature' campaign, which is supported by Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, CYTA, Mona's Art, AWOL and Get out. The media sponsor is CITY.
