PHEI will make them accessible for large public - local, regional and international - and enable them for consulting, study and researches.

i-mediatheque: creation of the interactive web portal/forum – i-mediatheque to display online the contemporary photography rich multimedia collection/archives uniting the multimedia pieces (slideshows) of South Caucasus and international photographers. The necessity of displaying multimedia archives online is defined by the unlimited possibilities of use of digital technologies and importance of online interaction within the portal/forum.
