« From Baltics to Balkans, When young people take the camera and tell their stories in/to Europe »
The project will stimulate sensibilisation and development of cultural and artistic practices of young people (13 – 18 years old) in the field of image production, as a component of non formal education. The adoption of a common theme to be explored visually, Our Dreams, will facilitate and frame the inter-cultural dialogue, necessary in Europe, on diversity and identities, from Baltics to Balkans.
A process of inter generational exploration of memory of conflicts is being carried out by each partner, through different media : sound, video, photo, music.
The goal is to give the word, through image and sound, to people with social or therapeutic difficulties, who are hosted in places like social and theraputic farms, elderly people residences, as well as to those who take care of them. One of the outputs is the production of documentary short films.
