Teresa Rotemberg – Children Theatre Production (Cairo) Testimonial, Theatre “I had the opportunity to learn from Egyptian Artists about their culture and engage in very productive artistic collaborations and personal exchanges” Nourhan Maayouf – Studio Residency Experience 2019 Studio Residency, Testimonial, Visual Arts I have been always scared to deal with the physical space, owing to the nature of my medium, digital photography. The two exhibition experiences have taught me to get over that fear. Working without a curator, I have learnt how to create an experience and visual narration for space visitors. Lord Kesseli and the Drums – Sailing Stones (Tunisia) Testimonial, Uncategorized “We think that model of residency should be applied widely and in different places; it opens doors for future collaborations between artists” Belia Winnewisser – The Sailing Stones Experience (Tunisia) Testimonial I learned a lot about the culture and about different ways of making music, since I work alone most of the time.

It was very inspiring to meet this (young) musicians working with minimal equipment and possibilities, but at the same time performing lots of shows, mainly at street parties or weddings. That gave a really different aspect to this collaboration. My work was impacted with the different views and the history of the city (Cairo).
