  1. Thank you for the report. Just few clarifications, “Reach the sky” project was organized and presented by Vamiali’s gallery for Remap 3 and curated by Anneta Papadatou. Montana cans was very kind to give us sponsor for paint but they did not sponsor the event. We would appreciate if you could check it and correct accordingly.
    Best regards, Vamiali’s Gallery
