Erasmus+ training course for youth workers interested in exploring methods based on digital tools for fostering intercultural dialogue

General Description

Intercultural dialogue is a process that comprises an open and respectful exchange or interaction between individuals, groups and organisations with different cultural backgrounds or world views. During this training we aim to develop a deeper understanding of diverse perspectives for youth workers using digital means of expressions, like videos and photography.

Modern European societies are getting more and more diverse in terms of culture and religion. The present influx of migrants and refugees is causing tensions and misunderstanding between minority and majority groups and many young people are prone to radical or even violent behaviors.

The problem stems from lack of understanding between people with diverse cultural background, who often lack the possibility to truly get to know each other’s opinions and values.

We believe that the way to address this problem is to give youth workers a method to let the youth interact more in a peaceful manner and provide them with a safe space for dialogue, which should in turn lead to a better understanding between them.

This project is to teach youth workers and young leaders who work with youth with diverse cultural background how to encourage their beneficiaries and how to interact more by creating and sharing their digital creations.

Objectives:
– To provide youth workers with knowledge about the digital dialogue method and its possible benefits for youth work
– To equip youth workers with the skills necessary to design and implement digital dialogue projects for intercultural dialogue in their own respective communities
– To enhance the ICT skills of youth workers and to promote the use of innovative youth work methodology based on digital means
– To establish a network of like-minded organizations and individuals, who are interested in the further exchange on the topic of effective non-formal educational learning methods
-To develop follow-up projects using the skills and knowledge gained during this Training Course

Participants profile:
– Youth workers and youth leaders interested in exploring new ways of working with people with diverse cultural and/or migration background
– Motivated to learn more about the concept of digital dialogue (prior knowledge of photo/video making and editing is not required)
– Interested in setting further co-operation with similar from other European countries

Training Course: Professional Video Positive Impact

Dates: 8-17 March 2016

Venue: Bradford, United Kingdom

Eligible are 1 Organiser + 2 Trainers + 24 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Finland, Romania, Spain, Ukraine, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 22nd January 2016

‘Professional Video Positive Impact’ will bring together 24 participants from 6 European countries. Together they will learn how to create quality video projects on a tight budget from trainers with experience in the TV & Movie industry.

Description

‘Professional Video Positive Impact’ will bring together 24 participants from 6 European countries. The countries involved are Bulgaria, Finland, Romania, Spain, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.

Many organisations (NGOs, charities, businesses, etc) use self-produced videos to promote themselves and their projects. Unfortunately, these videos often fail to make the impact that was hoped for them because they lack the polish and professional quality needed to grab the attention of their audience. Making a video is easy, but making a good video takes knowledge, skills and hard work.

‘Professional Video Positive Impact’ will teach its trainees:

• how to communicate successfully using video;
• how to tell a story quickly and clearly;
• the importance of planning;
• the power of editing;
• and give them the opportunity to experience the different roles of a filmmaking team.

The trainers and organisers of this course will include experts from across Europe with experience from the TV, Movie, Photography and Radio industries. The training methods used will be ‘non-formal’, meaning they are interactive, are based on learning-by-doing and experiential learning. This means participants must be ready to engage with others, or at least willing to push their comfort zones a little.

This training course is primarily aimed at youth workers and anyone who works with young people (young people are aged under 30 years) and who wish to improve their video-making skills for the benefit of young people. It is also open to people who work or volunteer for charities, NGOs and social groups and who wish to improve their video-making skills for the benefit of these organisations.

During the daily sessions, participants will take part in a range of team and solo activities that will expand their knowledge and practical abilities. They will also interact with the local community and put their new skills to use by creating promotional videos for several Bradford charities. There will also be day trips and visits to locations around Yorkshire and specifically to the UK’s National Media Museum (formerly known as the National Museum of Film & Photography).

The official purpose of ‘Professional Video Positive Impact’ is:
To develop the video-making and marketing competences of the attendees.

During the project, participants will achieve the following objectives:

• improve their knowledge of creating a story, of filming efficiently and of utilising media channels effectively.
• improve their skills in filming, editing and publishing videos online.
• become more confident in their digital abilities.
• develop their empathy towards disadvantaged people and be more culturally aware of their place in Europe.
• want to make a positive change in their companies, communities and NGOs.

Attendees must be 18+ years of age and be competent enough in English to speak freely and be involved in team activities. Participants can be of any nationality, but must travel to/from one of our 6 partner countries (Bulgaria, Finland, Romania, Spain, Ukraine or the United Kingdom).

Costs

 

‘Professional Video Positive Impact’ is co-financed by the Erasmus+ programme.

There is no participation fee.

Accommodation, food and basic learning materials will be provided by the organisers.

Travel costs to/from the training course will be fully reimbursed up to the national limits set by the Erasmus+ programme, which are roughly:

Bulgaria = €350
Finland = €250
Romania = €350
Spain = €250
Ukraine = €350
United Kingdom = €100

Participants are required to arrange their own travel and medical insurance for the duration of the training course. This is a mandatory condition for attending.
