TRY II: Televised Revolution Youth
We invite young people from Warsaw and its surroundings to take part in TRY II: Televised Revolution Youth project, organized by 4YOUth Foundation in cooperation with Backslash from Valencia (Spain) and Hawila Project from Copenhagen (Denmark).
The aim of the project is to equip a group of 18 young people from three partner countries with skills allowing them to create professional documentaries on social issues on their own. During three meetings in Warsaw (25 May – 2 June 2019), Valencia (July 2019) and Copenhagen (September 2019), participants will meet with local activists and activists. The interviews and study visits will be a source of inspiration for the creation of valuable videos. At the same time, they will be an opportunity to gain practical knowledge about a wide range of local, pan-European and global phenomena (such as uneven distribution of food, environmental pollution and disrespect for nature, climate change, migration and cultural diversity, problems of young people and seniors) and alternative ways of solving them. The result of the project will be a series of short film documentaries presenting inspiring stories and examples of good practices of actions for the benefit of local communities in the context of global threats and challenges.
The basic requirements for participation in the project:
- filling in and sending in the application form
- knowledge of English language at a level enabling free communication
- interest in film production and/or photography
- interest in local social activism and global challenges
- age between 16 and 30 years
An additional advantage (especially for people who will apply for the project as a group leader) will be experience in creating film materials, as well as knowledge of other foreign languages. Priority will be given to youngsters between 18 and 25 years old from Warsaw and the surrounding area who declare their willingness to participate in all project meetings (including the preparatory meeting at the beginning of May as well as a one-day local action in October this year). We particularly encourage people in a difficult financial situation, at risk of discrimination and exclusion to apply.
The project is funded under the Erasmus+ programme. The organisers provide accommodation, meals and reimbursement of travel costs. We look forward to receiving applications by April 15, 2019. All applicants will receive an e-mail with the results of the recruitment process by April 20, 2019.
