The final one-month exhibition was opened on May 10, 2005 at the ICB, and  lasted until June 10, 2005.

A Public Debate was also held at Ad-Dar Cultural and Conference Center on June 2, 2005. It proved to be a powerful forum as it was an important opportunity for the students to present their issues that were identified to decision makers representing government officials, local government officials and leaders of civil society organizations. Many have expressed their dissatisfaction with the current education system, but also with limited facilities for the youth as well as issues related to the political atmosphere and limited opportunities for employment after obtaining higher education. 
 

The public debate with decision makers



A final event of the installation art project was conducted on June 10, 2005 with the official closing of the one-month ICB exhibition. Principals, teachers and the students, were presented with gifts in appreciation of their participation in the project, and the time and effort they spent in making this project a success.
 

Students presented gifts in kind at the ICB
