Soapbox Success!!

The week of November 21st – 25th in Cinestudio highlighted another year of successful Soapbox. The one week of media culture & exploration into the vivid, the fascinating, and sometimes the horrifying windows of our need to create and communicate.

All of our evenings were well attended by University of Nicosia students & staff as well as the general public. We laughed and cried and ultimately had a glimpse into our own thoughts, anxieties, hopes and fears. The Mediazone team made all of this possible. The key word here is team!

Stay tuned for the Soapbox post event video!
