On Thursday June 12 at i-Qlick Canon Hall in #146 Sihanouk Boulevard in Phnom Penh, at six in the evening, we finally held the official opening of the final exhibition of our project.
We shared hall and event with another wonderful exhibition,, Message, by Cambodian photographer Miller in which he reflected on the meaning of life.
Many local and foreign people attended the event, which was covered by written and audiovisual media. It was great to see how the visitors enjoyed the artworks and how they awoke the curiosity about our work.
The attendants paid careful attention to the photographs, read inghe stories and chatting cheerfully about what they were discovering. Only a few people wanted to participate in an active way creating their own paper boats and drawings this opening day, but many parents repeated the visit bringing their children with them and, now yes, producing artworks in family, and some other people came back bringing their coworkers for them to enjoy interacting with the exhibition. We even had the chance to meet one of the artists whose picture had traveled with us across the Cambodian tour.
We felt really backed during this day as many people who had supported us in one way or another during the way, or who knew about our work, came to be with us in such a special moment. It was beautiful to see that even they got surprised by what we had done.
All of them congratulated us a lot, both for the work and for the way to share it. We were truly satisfied.
