Power of Multimedia-Bridges of Diversity
Start date: Sep 1, 2016,
End date: May 30, 2017
The project directly addresses the needs for gaining knowledge and practical tools, for developing new strategies by youth workers to take further action in future in intercultural learning field. This will help to extend the network between youth organisations which can organise concrete and specific media and visual arts tools in future to promote cultural diversity in their communities. Participants from European youth organisations will have the opportunity to gain a better understanding about cultural diversity for Balkan Region and other cultures represented and plan projects with common vision on the international level. We have chosen multimedia as a universal platform to tackle cultural diversity issues for two main reasons: for once, it is a versatile tool that allows for different forms of activity regardless of skill level. Secondly, through the use of multimedia tools young people can develop their transversal skills and thus our youth work offer becomes relevant to other aspects of their lives – education, employment, training. The main aim of the project is to develop the competences of European youth workers in the use of multimedia tools in youth work, mostly through photography and video to promote the positive image of cultural diversity. During the project we will explore key elements that refer to cultural diversity such as: personal cultural backgrounds, identity, nationality, religion and beliefs, living contexts, tensions, cultural sensitivity, prejudices and stereotypes.
