Main idea of the project were gypsy's community. The goal was to teach the participants to apprehend different cultures, and to appreciate diversity. To show, that gypsies can do many other things besides dancing and singing. They are interested in young people's problems in general, and can express their opinion. Through project's activities they' learned basics of journalism, developed skills in communication, learned how to edit photographies, and to work with video camera and microphone. The final product is a printed magazine.
International exchange attended by 38 participants from Slovakia, Romania, Hungary and Turkey. 26 of them are with fewer opportunities.
First activities were focusing on getting to know each other, team-building, and presentation of attending groups. During discussions, they improved communication skills, and to be tolerant and perceptive. Other methods were workshops, simulation of newspaper work, buzz groups and reflexion.
Participants will improve their communication skills, to work with audio-visual technology, will experience work of a journalist, will develop their creativity.
We will promote positive attitude towards different cultures in the eye of the public, through medialization, will ignite the will of gipsy youth to participate in regional work, and will focus on needs to actively join the fight against racism and xenophobia.
In long term cooperation we expect them to practically use their newly gained experience and skills, followed by another mutual e-magazine distributed in electronic form.
