Creative Documentary Development Workshop was a major milestone of the North Aegean Narratives Project. On 18 April 2012, the NAN project team, participating artists, instructors, and a diverse group of acclaimed lecturers have all met in the village of Adatepe to realize a 9-day creative exercise.

The agenda was densely packed with courses, seminars and lectures on a wide variety of subjects that span from story development to production and post-production techniques, from population exchange to mythology. There were screenings of feature and documentary films from Greece and Turkey, Q&A sessions, and round-table discussions.

Lead by our senior and local instructors, the workshop also hosted a number of representatives of the local community, who shared their insights and experiences with the participants.
