July 2009 Bambo Soyinka and project assistant David Sinden visited Sofia to meet with Margarita Dorovska from project partner InterSpace and with the British Council Sofia office and to research possible Silent Revival workshop venues. The Red House cultural centre in Sofia was selected as an ideal venue for the workshop which has been scheduled for October 2009. The Red House will also provide accomodation space for visiting workshop participants.

June 2009 Bambo Soyinka travelled to Athens to meet with Vlassis Komninos and staff at the Greek Film Archive, to research the collections of early silent films and devise initial plans for the Silent Revival project.
