3rd – 6th November 2010, Berlin
Open for: young European media makers
Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation, German Youth Press and European Youth Press would like to invite you and 24 other young European media makers to an European congress about “My Story, our history – European memories”.
Do you remember your first day at school?
Do you remember what you have done and thought when the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain came down?
You are not alone with your thoughts about those days. Those events remain unforgettable. But there are other events which we forget or even try to eliminate.
At the European Youth Media Convention will be discussed how individuals or societies deal with memories. Taking the peaceful revolution in Eastern Europe as an example the organizers want to question different ways to remember, e.g. oral history reports or memorials. What do we remember? Do you want to join our research about individual and collective memories?
The participants will:
* be a representative of the country and thus report about local memories as well as history, in this way the congress offers participants the chance to get connected with young media makers from all across Europe;
* get the opportunity to listen to presentations of experts and moreover discuss and exchange different perspectives with them;
* create media products in four workshops (due to interests and skills they can chose between print, radio, TV and photography).
* There is no participation fee.
* Accommodation and catering are organized by Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation Berlin.
* The travel costs need to be covered by participants.
All interested applicants should submit a short letter of motivation and CV with the applicant’s experiences in media and project work to [email protected]
The application deadline is August 10th 2010.
