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?

During the festival I met many artists who works in the same field as me, many organisations that works with media & art in general. I went to many discussions focused on the problems of promoting & distribution of this type of art in the middle east specially Palestine, Egypt and Lebanon. This helped me a lot to find a way to solve this problem and one of the most important thing that happened to me and helped me in promoting my work is that the local TV stations showed my film.

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

This kind of exchange is really important to develop this kind of art in my country and I believe that its really good to increase these exchanges in order to reach the aim of developping this kind of art in my country and to spread it.

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

The mobility has helped me develop my skills. Travelling to new places I gained more cultural knowledge and by meeting new people that have different skills and different cultural backgrounds I had the chance to learn a lot about them. I believe that mobility gives me the chance to gain new skills, cultural knowledge and new techniques for creating my work and exhibiting it.
