Partizipation und Demokratie fördern 2015

Get Your Own Picture_ Bielefeld

Time: 01.09.2015 – 01.12.2016

“Get Your Own Picture” is a youth workshop. 20 young refugees and locals record their own audiovisuals together.

After learning necessary theories about making audiovisuals they will be supported in transforming their ideas into practise and making their own audiovisuals about “being European”.

The main aim is to give them an understanding of new media 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 about their interests. The young people will become aware of their shared historical roots and can experience interculturalism.

It is not a secret that youngsters have a special interest for audiovisual media such as photography, music and films in these days. The common passion for the topic “Image & Sound” will be very helpful here. The participants will experience that they have many similarities in spite of different cultural backgrounds and different religious opinions. In addition to the audiovisuals, the intercultural meeting is very important. Therefor we will offer for example the possibility to visit some regional places of interest or special theme days, where the participants can present their countries and what is typical for them. The finished end-products will be shown in Bielefeld and 12th ISFF Detmold 2016 in Detmold and sent to other festivals all over the world. Afterwards they will be analysed together with reviewers.
