On the afternoon of Saturday 16th October 2010 μηλιά led a creative walkabout open to all members of the public through the meandering streets of the oldcity: from the Municipal Market at the height of its activity, through Eptanisou Street by the Green Line, to Ermou Street, Chrysaliniotissa and AyiosKassianos Areas.
Participants young and old were prompted by μηλιά’s creative booklets to employ their five senses and their imaginations as we took the time to stroll, pause, observe detail, and reflect on the multifaceted areas we visited.
Participants’ stories, reflective poems, skits, notes,compositions….
Liked time taken…to observe, touch, see in detail…. – Kostas & Koulla
I liked everything. Really breathtaking! (only it smelled) – Ilaira, 12
I liked the route – it was lovely – Sophia 33
I think that the timing was perfect. I’ve been here before … but I’ve neverobserved so much – Maria, 16
Nice- it makes you notice things, think… we need more time – Maria 36
What would you recommend/ want to change in this area?
So many participants wanted to see the area ‘cleaned up’, ‘restored’, wantedcoffee houses and kebab shops there, to have parties and concerts going onthere, ‘to be able to visit some houses’
