Dear all,

Enjoying the discussion and thanks for your exciting proposal Christoph!

We were intitially thinking to produce a synthesis of all sliders into one image, but I really like the way you brought back the flags from the logo and somehow it humorously represents the many territories, people, cultures, perspectives that come together to meet at LGM.

Thanks ale, pippin for re-emphasizing the fact that these categories are not opposed nor value statements. I was just revising the call for projects, and felt it is quite an interesting experiment especially with this year's special focus?
