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 trip was crucial in the development of the Echgi Memeg project. We could organise a private screening at Art Lounge with the support of Heinrich Böll Middle East in the presence of Berjuhi. The confrontation with the public (about 60 people) was empathic and critical and abled us to get better prepared for the final chapter of the project (making the trip to Istanbul). Two TV channel (future TV from Lebanon and Armenian TV) were there as well. This occasion created informal meetings with people who are following the project since then, ready to make it happen.

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

The mobility has definitely enhanced my sense of initiative and ability to find solutions in not well known contexts.
