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?

Paul Geday is an Egyptian filmmaker, photographer and curator whose practice often evolves around individual and collective memories through the usage of diverse filmic or photographic archival materials and oral histories. He is interested in exploring Maltese emigration to Egypt in the 19th and 20th century as a background to the current opposite flux and part of the long multiple exchanges between the shores of the mediterranean. The outcome of this project will be a chapter in his ongoing research "Take me back to Cairo!" which explores plurality and diversity through vernacular photography in 1950's Cairo. He will be working in the Valletta archives in Malta.
