Mirrors: Trans-Mediterranean Archive Dialogue

We are delighted to announce a yearlong collaborative project which began November 2022 in the context of Thoulathy, an initiative for cross-border collaborations between cultural organizations from selected “North” and “South” countries.

The project, “Mirrors,” aims to exchange expertise on archival practice and share content between the Archipelago Network and two other entities situated in coastal regions of the Mediterranean sea; UMAM Documentation and Research (Beirut, Lebanon), and the Cimatheque-Alternative Film Centre (Cairo, Egypt). The collaboration is implemented by Culture Resource & MitOst and co-funded by the European Union.

Details on the project will be announced over the course of 2023.
