This oral history testimony voices Andreas Skarparis' memories of leaving Assia village on the 14th of August, on the day of the second Turkish invasion.

Voicing Stories

Voicing Stories project is now live, with a newly designed website and online archive that was designed as a means to preserve and share oral history from communities of Cyprus.

We aim to equip storytellers, story lovers, Cypriots and non-Cypriots of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, creative practitioners, academics, students, experts and non experts with the capacity to research, document and communicate history, community, creativity and socio-cultural heritage by recording, voicing, or listening to stories.


You are invited to voice your own heritage, by fostering an inter-generational dialogue with members of your local community, and archiving your recorded or reinterpreted oral history material in this platform.
