Phil Bird and Anna Georghiou will also run a free Visual arts workshop at the Cornaro institute on the 4th October that will be open to artists, the public and undergraduate and post graduate students. They will also be leading a workshop at the Alexanda College Larnaca.

In the future they would like to organise an artists exchange between Cyprus based painters / sculptors/ceramicists and UK based painters /sculptors /ceramists to include exhibition, workshops , talks and music.

There recent bid for funding has been rejected by the arts council although 4 galleries , Art centres and schools wished to take part and support the event to include exhibitions, workshops and performances, open to carefully targeted audiences including Adults with learning disabilities, students , Artists and the general public in the south west.

Even-though Phil Bird and Anna Georghiou had gained the support of these venues / councils and funder's in the South West the arts council rejected the bid commenting that there was not enough Public engagement in the Uk.
