The call for participation and cooperation in this process was answered by over 90 cultural actors, with individual and group interviews planned to be conducted during June, July and August.
In the first phase, which will last for six weeks, BL 2024 team will open a dialogue with all cultural operators and actors that answered the call. Each session of individual interviews will last 45 minutes.
