Verena Knaus represented ESI at the first ERSTE Foundation Community Kick-Off meeting organised by the foundation's Europe department. The idea was to bring all key partners and grant recipients of ERSTE together for a brainstorming and to see if new synergies could be created across projects. Other participants at the brainstorming session included Kai Voeckler (Archis Intervention), Tine Gamper (Interkulturelles Zentrum), and Hedvig Morvai-Horvath (European Fund for the Balkans).

Alan Grant is an Irish photographer who travelled extensively in the Balkans and other countries and regions of the world. Thanks to him, ESI is able to show fascinating pictures of the Balkans: the facades of Tirana, the painted mosques of Travnik, the fabulous old houses of Plovdiv and the spectacular blue of water - dark in the Bay of Kotor, emerald in the river valleys of Bosnia, deep blue in Ohrid, twinkling in the Aegean Sea and on the Bosporus.
