Call for Developing Multimedia Storytelling Skills in Armenia

Deadline: August 18, 2019

 

This autumn, Are We Europe is teaming up with their partner-in-crime Cafébabel to organise the week of our dreams: masterclasses in multimedia storytelling, on the ground reporting and, as a result, a beautiful multimedia story. You will join us and a team of motivated, international students to develop your multimedia production skills and put these into practice on the spot. And where better to do this than in a city that deserves further exploration: Yerevan, Armenia?

 

Where and When?

15 people will have the opportunity to participate in our masterclass in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. We will take off from Paris on October 9th at 2pm, and return on the 15th at 10pm.

 

Who?

You must:

👉 be under 35 years-old (Erasmus Youth Program)

👉 hold a valid European passport

👉 be able to depart from Paris on October 9th

👉 understand and speak English

 

What?

Program: Multimedia journalism workshops, reports on the ground, awesome atmosphere, a dream team, and an online multimedia website at the end.

What we need from you in exchange: In order to continue the workshops, we ask you to contribute to the content that will feed the final website, according to the format you have chosen.

To be a part of the adventure, a contribution of 180 euros, or 90 euros for students, is requested.

What does this include?

✔ the Masterclass

✔ the travel from Paris

✔ the accommodation (hotel, youth hostel or AirBnB)

✔ breakfasts, and lunches.

As a participant, you will follow the workshops of your main block, and work as a team on making reports (videos, photos, writing, data, podcasts, depending on the module chosen) during the five days on location.

You will also be able to choose a secondary block among the four, to attend classes and workshops. You will not need to participate in the production of content in this second block.

 

The groups

Block A : Journalistic storytelling in written format (narrative writing, fighting clichés and banalities, writing less but better)

Block B : Storytelling with pictures (video shooting, editing, photo)

Block C : Podcasting (recording a podcast, editing, narration)

Block D : Display a story (design, graphics, collection of information)

 

Apply?
