JULY 15th – 17th    AGROS

Onwards and backwards:
Colonialism and intersectionality

Faithful to its nomadic tradition, Xarkis Festival 2022 moves to Agros, a mountainous village famous for its roses, water and vibrant agrotourism in the district of Limassol, Cyprus!

Artists from all over the world will interact with the local community and present their work to the public, offering three full days of engaging workshops, live performances and concerts, film screenings, interactive games and much more!

This year, Xarkis Festival will also host nine additional artists from the EU project CONTESTED DESIRES, where challenges and taboos will be discussed in relation to our colonial legacies. Read more about the project and the artists involved here: contesteddesires.eu
