“I am so happy and grateful to have met the incredible April and Adrian. These two months in Berlin have been full of inspiration, peace, endless support, and warmth here at WIRWIR. I am very grateful to you, Hanna, that you devoted so much time and attention to our communication and to finding a suitable residence for me; it is an incredible job. I feel very uplifted and excited after the event that I managed to organize and hold during this residency, a very important event for me recently. Two months full of opportunities and interesting acquaintances. This is an incredible and very valuable experience for me. Thank you Hanna and Artists at Risk and I send you hugs!”
