The last two days of the seminar were dedicated to summarise and finalise the findings of this week and create a common exhibition. The video group was editing and collecting their bits and pieces for the big common movie, in the photo group each person was choosing the one shot, that should be displayed in the exhibition and the interview group distilled quotes from their talks with people from Olsztyn and the region and created poster art.
