Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival


The Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival is part of the Home for Cooperation’s cultural and artistic agenda as one of its peacebuilding programs. The Buffer Fringe Festival showcases new and experimental work by local and international artists, challenges physical and artistic barriers, and creates opportunities for artists to meet and exchange ideas.

Embedding creativity into social process, the Festival questions the role art can play at a moment and space of transition to enable alternative narratives to dominant discourse. At the same time, Buffer Fringe develops interdisciplinary tools which enhance the exploration of the relationship between arts and peacebuilding.

Building Bridges

Buffer Fringe as a core program of the Home for Cooperation, aims to engage with people across communities through an intersectional lens, enabling the emergence of alternative subjectivities to dominant historical narratives and ideologies which are vey much politicized and often divisive for the people of Cyprus.

Supporting Artists

Acknowledging the importance of arts to resist and recreate, persevering through the precarity of our times, one of the Festival's main priorities is to support emerging and established artists, showcase interdisciplinary work and innovative methodologies, and enable participation in the knowledge sharing and exchange the Festival instigates.

Co-creation & Collaboration

The Festival places co-creation and collaboration at its centre. Striving to provide space for collective practice, ideas and exchange, each Festival edition is shaped through the contribution of artists, field practitioners, cultural experts, academics and organizations from Cyprus and abroad.
