Get Your Own Picture

Dates: 18.10.2023 – 29.10.2023
Location: Yozgat, Turkey
Type of the project: Erasmus+ Youth Exchange


In the “Get Your Own Picture” project each par cipant writes, shoots and edits of their own films and crews on 50 others within 10 days. At the end of the 10 days, the films are celebrated in a screening open to audience. All par cipants who complete the workshop receive a Youth Pass and leave the program with a digital master of all their projects.


The basic idea of the YE is to connect and motivate young people with an international background to work together within a clear and structured platform towards a defined goal: Go create your own short films together with regard to the topic Active Citizenship.

The main aim is to give them an understanding of films as a medium for expression of opinion and participation. They will deal with the question of differences and similarities between the cultures and will go into detail with the youth’s interests. The young people will become aware of their shared historical roots and can experience interculturalism.

With the different cultural & religious views, the participants will experience that there are still a lot of similarities among themselves. Another aim of the project is to cultivate the further professional development of young people through exchanges, involving communities in European cities and start building a youth expert base in the communities.

In addition, the project aims to raise awareness for the power of audiovisual language among the young people, the potential for emphasing their own voice as individuals and take part in building a better future in.


The workshop is aimed at youth 21-30 years old.

We especially invite people affected by any forms of discrimination such as ableism, racism, classism and sexism. The people coming together from five different countries all have different backgrounds and socialization which is why we can’t promise a safe space. But we would like to communicate about these important topics collectively and respectfully, meeting each other where everyone is at. We should all feel responsible to sensitize each other and create a safer space for everybody. Since this program line from Erasmus+ has no opportunities to pay educators.
