A bit of a History

The idea for a bicommunal media center was first proposed by Yiannis Laouris of Future Worlds Center, and Bulent Kanol of the The Management Centre in the context of the joint project Towards a New Media Landscape funded by HasNa Inc.. An unsuccessful application submitted to UNDP/UNOPS in 2005 kindled in 2008 an invitation by the UN (New York) to submit an application for the creation of community media center.
