Dilijan, a small green town in Armenia, was hosting 20 participants from Armenia and Turkey for the second time. From August 4 to 12 (2019) 20 young people gathered to develop their photography and storytelling skills with the help of National Geographic photographer John Stanmeyer, VII Photo Agency member Anush Babajanyan from Armenia, and a prize-winning photographer from Turkey Sabiha Cimen. Apart from this goal the project also created a platform for communication for these young people as well as allowed them to learn more about the culture of the neighboring country.
Ahead are several months of creative collaboration of the participants and the trainers and lots of stories uploaded on our Instagram account. Months of work will be followed with exhibitions in Turkey and Armenia showcasing the works implemented by the youth. Therefore check our Facebook page for updates, follow our Instagram account, and share the stories you like among your friends and networks.
Below are glimpses from the Bridging Stories II camp week.
