More about i-mediatheque

Through this freely accessible online archive, TPMM aims to give access to a large public to the work of hundreds of photographers. These multimedia pieces constitute as well precious resources for NGOs, activists and the museum itself to tackle social issues, advocate human rights and open debates among the society in the frame of their activities.

In the South Caucasus Region – Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, as part of Moving Museum of Photography, slideshows traveled throughout mountainous and remote regions to reach out new audiences, usually deprived of educational and cultural events in the frame of public screenings and talks.

Since its creation, the i-mediatheque has reached thousands of international users.
