When we look back on 2017, we realize that we have done an incredible amount of work! We have finished some long term projects and started new ones. We have knit new partnerships and walked through Nida again, drawn new maps of knowledge and thought about newness, and compared old mythological history with contemporary stories. We wish to thank those who follow and support us, and participate in our events! With this review we take a glimpse at the past year and anticipate the plans for the new one.
