\n\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\n\t\r\nQuotes from the participating photographers about the networking trip:
\r\n\"I was really happy with the reception of our works. A lot more people were engaged especially with the whole talk. It felt like it was easier to explain our works and people were more interested to ask questions which made it really comforting.\" -Geric Cruz
\r\n\"This trip is a good way to get inspired as an artist/photographer.\" - Muhammad Fadli
\r\n\"It was inspiring to see how everyone had progressed since we last me. It was very insightful and personal.\"- Lee Chang Ming
\r\n\"From a great opening, I felt more confident to open discussion on my work which push me more interesting in panel discussion which inspired me more.\" - Khiev Kanel
\r\n\"Internally, being able to reconnect with everyone else felt very important. The session at Ostkreuzschule was a closed thing and it was moving to see how all of us (including Jörg and Tobi) have changed and grown in just a few years.\" - Dennese Victoria
\r\n\"One of the best thing I like about the trip is able to connect to the people from the Basis Gallery, the Museums and Ostkreuz. Learn about their culture and how they run galleries and projects.\" - Elliott Koon
\r\n\"It has been a wonderful experiences, I learn a lot form it. For example, I’ve learn that, there are different practices and methods in working with photography that I can explore more. It is more like, how will I use what I’ve learn from the program for my future works rather than looking back to my previous work.\" - Dwi Asrul Fajar
\r\n“During the trip to Frankfurt and Berlin, I had a chance to talk and discuss with many people who saw our works. Most people are from different background and live in different cultural context, it was a good opportunity for me to exchange idea and discuss with them.” - Watsamon June Tri-yasakda
\r\n“We became incredibly connected through this course of 2 years and have been inspired by each other. The programmes have allowed us to speak about our work many times in a public space and i think without us realizing it has grown our confidence and allowed us to own our work positively.” -Amrita Chandradas
