Cypriot Diaspora

An introduction to my new series of videos titled ‘Cypriot Diaspora’ Tales from Cypriots Abroad. I’m hoping to give people who migrated or were born or raised outside of Cyprus the opportunity to tell their story, their feelings about their lives and their feelings about Cyprus.

For many people, especially those who have left behind them poverty, or civil unrest in Cyprus, the prospect of a new life offered a real dream. Many of those who left have prospered, at least financially, but is that the only barometer for success?

Years later when the original migrants have aged and raised their own children outside of Cyprus, if they were to be really honest, how successful would they deem themselves to be?

Has there been a cost to their prosperity, how have their dreams changed from those early days of being part of a Cypriot community abroad? Was there a cost to the Cypriot people as a whole,  be it culturally, socially or morally?

I would love the opportunity to film you sharing your life experiences.

If you would like to participate when I’m nearby, please Contact me.
