Start date: Aug 1, 2015,
End date: Apr 30, 2016
Organization “Associazione: Modavi federazione provinciale di Napoli onlus” will be the host of youth exchange “Movie-making for social inclusion” which will take place in Naples, Italy, from 2 until 9 of December 2015. This project will gather 42 young people from 7 countries- Serbia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Albania. The project theme deals with filming short movies by participants on the theme of how they perceive the social exclusion, poverty, homelessness, disability, membership of an ethnic minority, lack of adequate literacy skills, unemployment, family circumstances, addiction problems and similar issues connected to social exclusion, and raising the awareness of general public, government officials and European officials about the existing problem and provoking a solution not only from the officials but from each individual who would see a movie or hear about the problem from a friend. This project offeres to youngsters the opportunity to make their voice heard and to express their view upon fighting against poverty and social exclusion . Here they can be so free to use filming short movies as a tool for active youth participation.
The theme of the project grasps the notion of social inclusion- as not just about having access to mainstream services- but it is about PARTICIPATION in the community as active citizens.
Reducing the barriers to inclusion requires integrated effort across government and non-government agencies at all levels, horizontally and vertically, influencing policy and practice through direct links to individual experience. Through partnership working, organizations from all sectors could build the bridges, required to support community participation, active citizenship and build social capital.
The working methods include practical workshops on the basics of creating short movies, writing a script, filming on location, acting, editing materials etc. Also, the working methods include many non-formal learning activities for more in-depth grasping of the problem of social inclusion.
The project design first would prepare the participants with their own attitudes and opinions, and afterward would film what they have attained. Participants would also be welcomed to use their own footage material if that contributes to their creativity idea and contributes to their creativity processes for making a quality designed short movie on the theme of social exclusion.
The involvement of the partners begun from it design, however, the project partners would be included in every step of the way of running the project.
