Natalie Christopher Memorial Event

Cyprus : Natalie Christopher Memorial Event

A memorial event to honour our much-loved Natalie Christopher will be held in the Buffer Zone (Nicosia) on Wednesday, August 28, starting at 7pm.

It is being arranged by a range of groups with which Natalie was closely involved, including Cyprus Trail Runners, Runite Nicosia, Cyprus Girls Can, the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research, and the Home for Cooperation (H4C).

The event will be held at the H4C and will be totally secular, with no prayers said or religious (or political) statements made. It will comprise a series of short tributes by people and organisations from right across the island who knew or worked with Natalie.

Tributes will be in Greek, Turkish and English but due to time constraints, these will not be translated. There will also be poetry readings and, possibly, one or two solo songs. At the end of the tributes we will light candles and have a time of silent reflection/meditation.

After the event, which will last no more than two hours, refreshments will be served and people will have the opportunity to stargaze through telescopes from the roof of the H4C, and marvel at the wonders of the universe, the way Natalie did.

Note that only a limited number of people will be able to speak at the memorial, but a book will be available in which people can write their personal tributes to Natalie.

If you would like to pay a short tribute – either in words, poetry, or song – please send an email to [email protected] and we will see if we can fit you into the lineup. If you have pictures of Natalie that you wish to be included in the rolling slideshow that will be projected at the event, please send them to the same email address.

We expect a large crowd so please would everyone coming from the south side park outside the Buffer Zone (there is plenty of parking just before the entrance to the Ledra Palace crossing) and walk the short distance to the H4C. Carry IDs and bring cushions to sit on.

For those unfamiliar with the Home For Cooperation, read all about this amazing community centre here:
Natalie conducted many of her projects on the premises, as it provides a welcoming space for people of all backgrounds, cultures and colours on the island.
