NarPhotos: Glazed Time
Glazed Time project aims to contribute to the reconciliation between the peoples of Turkey and Armenia through the use of visual material featuring personal histories of people living in Eastern part of Turkey and Istanbul. The grantee, NarPhotos, will support the cultural dialogue and reconciliation between the two communities via exploration, documentation and dissemination of the memories of the past of the Armenian community in Turkey.

In particular, the grantee, will produce short video documentaries, photographs and narratives compiled in a Digital Book, and a blog page. In addition, the grantee will organise an exhibition in Istanbul to promote documentary series as a means of a “dialogue through cultural interaction.”

The project will help the people of Turkey to understand, face with and question their direct role in the alienation of the Armenian community in Turkey. Also, the project will bring up new questions and debates within Turkey, which might further facilitate the dialogue between the two communities in Turkey, as well as the dialogue between the two countries.
