A multimedia exhibition “Beyond Waiting…Stories from the Turkey-Armenia Border” will run from June 1-30 in Istanbul’s Galata Fotoğrafhanesi.
An announcement for the exhibit states that - Sealed in 1993, the Turkey-Armenia border continues to divide people, villages, railway tracks, children's laughter and memories. "Beyond Waiting" captures the daily lives of people in the border cities Kars and Gyumri as well as the years of interrupted dialogue.
The five multimedia documentaries have been jointly produced by Aleksey Manukyan, Anıl Çizmecioğlu, Anush Babajanyan, Arif Yaman, Armenuhi Vardanyan, Deniz Pekkıyıcı, Eren Aytuğ, Marianna Vardanyan, Sofia Danielyan and Volkan Doğar.
The exhibition has been organized by the Hrant Dink Foundation, Galata Fotoğrafhanesi, Free Press Unlimited and YIC Youth Initiative Center in Gyumri.
The five multimedia documentaries, to be exhibited, were produced within the framework of the “Multimedia for Dialogue” project supported by the Consulate-General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the British Embassy.
The project aims at creating an enabling environment for the joint productions of young photographers from Turkey and Armenia, to strengthen their voice through new forms of storytelling and to contribute to dialogue between the two neighbouring countries.
