Lino Hellings is the artistic director of PAPA. 
She developed PAPA in a residency at Photo Press Agency Drik in Dhaka (Bangladesh) and in working with local photographers (with an international status) in PAPA-Labs in Lagos (Nigeria), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Rotterdam (the Netherlands) Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), Ramallah (Palestine).   
Lino Hellings was a founder of the legendary theatre company Dogtroep, which investigated public space in specific locations as PAPA does today, though Dogtroep’s purpose was not to make news but spectacle theatre. As public spaces in Western cities began to look more and more alike (the same kinds of commercial streets with the same stores), Hellings left Dogtroep after seventeen years to focus on the new public space of the internet. In her net projects, she always endeavoured to create a hybrid of physical and virtual space. PAPA focuses on the rediscovery of local physical space, from the globalized perspective that the internet makes possible.
