How did this grant contribute to the realization of your project in regard to artistic exchange, local cultural development and/or the promotion of cultural diversity?

This project helped to establish contacts with different organizations from the Caucasus, Mediterranean countries as well as European countries, and Morocco. The training course was a great contribution to my artistic project. It stirred the development of new ideas and new forms of artistic expression through visual art, mainly photography and multimedia. Caucasian and Mediterranean artists and cultural operators were presenting conflict and peace through photography. Within the next three months I am going to organize the “Multimedia exhibition and Intercultural cinema” in Armenia together with my new partners of Mediterranean and Caucasian countries.

How does exchange, networking and international contacts contribute to the development of your artistic and cultural project?

Armenia is in tense conflict with its neighbor countries, Turkey and Azerbaijan, and mostly the society needs to overcome hostility, and discussions of the same kind of the issues as a third, impartial part (issues of Croatia , Serbia, Macedonia, Greece) will help them be more objective, consequently analyze their own conflict from other point view, trying to find solutions to their conflicts.

Can you elaborate on the learning and knowledge you have gained and shared throughout this experience?

Mobility and intercultural interactions are very important for me as a cultural manager, it helps me to be more open with people, obtain new skills in communication with the artists of different nationalities, realize their ambitions, trying to be flexible with them in order to find common edges to cooperate with them.
