Werbekampagne Non-Profit Südtirol
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2017
Our mobility project is the subsequent result of a long-term internalization strategy undergone by our vocational school step by step during the last years. Thus this new exchange, planned for three flows each with 20 students is the next step towards a lasting set-up for gaining underlying knowledge within the line of work combined with a work experience abroad as well as a development of our students’ personalities plus a development of our school which was awarded for setting and keeping high standards with using and developing media in the classroom as well as working with a quality management system.
With this project we would like to get young people to participate and use their creative talent in voluntary work for non-profit organizations in the area around Bozen, Italy. In appreciation for the cultural, ecological and/or social situation in this area our students will try to develop a new perspective for a region that they so far only know from being on holidays there. In a close-knit cooperation with creative students and the experienced staff of both the Gutenberg vocational school of Bozen and ours the participants will strive to create modern, fashionable media for advertising for special local needs. These means for advertising will not only be designed but also brought into existence. We would especially like to have those non-profit organizations to benefit from our work which do not have the financial means or staff or knowledge in regard to media.
B. Goals and Objectives
Our students as well as their teachers will profit immensely from the knowledge and the experience they will gain during their work placements in another European country. Different ways for accessing a new project will inspire the young trainees of both nationalities and will help them in the future when working on new projects. The Designers of Digital and Print Media will pick up new techniques in photography, in the editing of pictures or in web design. Working together and discussing ideas for designing a project will lead to reflecting one’s own ideas as well as those from others in the group. Both groups of students, German and Italian, can thus enlarge their knowledge. Being in contact with one another and working together could lead to finding friends in a foreign country which would also have a positive impact on the development of our students’ personalities.
C. Number and profile of participants
Our project is meant to consist of three flows within two years with 20 trainees in media design participating in each flow. All students are young adults and already have a broad spectrum of knowledge related to the area of designing media and graphic design. In addition, the teachers accompanying the students and working on the project as well are experienced graphics specialists, web designers or print technologists.
