Since 2009 the Istanbul based association DIYALOG developed in cooperation with the filmmakers Sabine Küper-Büsch, Thomas Büsch and several Turkish Universities and institutions video workshops for local communities. These video workshops were realized in Turkey, Hungary, Afghanistan and Northern Iraq in cooperation and with a financial support of the Goethe-Institut and the German Foreign Ministry between 2009 and 2016. Participants were people with and without filmmaking experiences and with and without migration background. The results of the film workshop serial “Searching Traces” involving the topic of migration from Syria to Istanbul were screened at the Pera Museum, at the Documentarist Film Festival and at Studio-X Istanbul, a space of the Columbia University, in Istanbul in 2015 and 2016. They were part of the Film Festival “Gravity for all” of the Villa Romana in Florence 2016 and at the Mahalla festival in Istanbul in the parallel program of the 15th Istanbul Art Biennial in September 2017.
