National Youth Strategy is a product of cross-sectoral cooperation, based on the active and direct involvement of Ministries, government agencies dealing with young people, youth organizations and, above all, young people themselves. With the existence of the National Strategy, coordinated actions in the field of creativity and culture can be taken at national level. More information about the National Youth Strategy, as well as the cross-sectoral approach with other ministries can be found in the first chapter (sub chapters 1.3 and 1.5).
In addition, the Cyprus Theatre Organisation (THOC) has collaborations with various actors, such as the collaboration with non-governmental organisations and groups for the promotion of activities for theatre (Theatricon Katafygio/Θεατρικό Καταφύγιο) and collaboration with the University of Cyprus (Στρατηγική συμφωνία συνεργασίας Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου – ΘΟΚ) and the Cyprus National Addictions Authority (Υπογραφή Μνημονίου Συνεργασίας) to promote cooperation in the field of culture and education.
On February 2020, the Youth Board of Cyprus has also signed a memorandum of cooperation (Μνημόνιο Συνεργασίας υπέγραψαν το Μουσείο Πιερίδη- Πολιτιστικό Ίδρυμα Τράπεζας Κύπρου και ο Οργανισμός Νεολαίας Κύπρου) with Pierides Museum-Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation, thus undertaking the joint organization of information and engagement activities for young people on issues of artistic, historical, research and educational content in order to bring young people closer to culture and make culture more accessible to them. The Memorandum also provides for joint participation in European and other programs aimed at the cultural development of young people.
There are no national policies or programmes fostering partnerships between the stakeholders of the culture and creative sector with youth NGO’s and youth workers.
