Cyprus Plastic Arts Association was established in order to contribute to the cultural and artistic accumulation and values of our country and to spread the arts to a wider environment. Cyprus Plastic Arts Association aims to raise interest in fine arts in society and to ensure the learning, proliferation and development of plastic arts. The association also aims to organize cultural and artistic activities promoting Turkish Cypriot culture and art in the country and abroad with art projects.
