a personal note

Through cdcArts, Alex Mavrocordatos offers a range of services in Theatre and Media for Education and Development , using participatory performance practices and incorporating
new social media applications

cdcArts sees cultural action and development communications as dialogical processes that are by no means limited to the top down delivery of development messages.

projects and consultancies include:

  • project design and implementation ( both locally and abroad)
  • training at grass roots or training of trainers and facilitators
  • evaluation of development programmes that cultural action as strategies for communication, exploration of local and global realities, advocacy and social transformation

cdcArts' project work seeks to

  • support marginalised communities in understanding and articulating their own concerns and strategising for a new future.
It is built on on
  • the use of improvisation as creative expression that is tranformative in itself
  • live/recorded performance and new media


There is a pool of expertise to draw upon, all with substantial experience of working in the field - in the UK and in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, as and when further human resources are demanded.
