[Nettime-ro] One Minutes Jr. Workshop in Chisinau - Moldova


16 - 22 May, 2005

The OneMinutes Jr is an international collaboration established in
November 2002 by the European Cultural Foundation, UNICEF, and the
Sandberg Institute (a postgraduate institute for fine arts). The project
promotes a One Minutes video network and competition for young people
(12-20) in Europe, Central Asia and North Africa to produce their own
video messages and thus to express themselves and learn valuable media
skills in the process. 

OneMinutesJr are 60 seconds of video made by young people. Like a visual
haiku, the length of one minute both challenges the creators to form
their ideas clearly and gives them the freedom to express themselves,
which is the basic right of every young person. More info is also
available at the project website: www.theoneminutesjr.org
<http://www.theoneminutesjr.org/> .

Within the framework of the OneMinutesJr network we will organize an
international workshop in Chisinau (Moldova) for young people (ages
12-20)from the following countries:


The workshop will take place from May 16-20. Right after the workshop,
the produced films and their makers will participate in the Cronograf
Film Festival <http://www.cronograf.owh.md/> -
http://www.cronograf.owh.md/ <http://www.cronograf.owh.md/> in
Chisinau (May 19-22) and we will link the workshop to the Festival to
generate bigger outreach for the produced films, inculding public
screenings and round-tables with the young filmmakers. 

The workshop will focus on the topic of migration. Many children in the
countries of Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union are left without
parental care due to migration. For most of them, this is the key issue
that makes them live through some dramatic moments. It traumatizes them
psychologically and at the same time exposes them to many other risks.
We will carefully try to give the workshop participants a chance to
voice their fears, their views, their hopes - thus getting a better
picture of how they really feel about the changing (Eastern) Europe
around them and the impact it has on their immediate environment. Again,
we will stress the benefits of artistic video making in this process and
will encourage the participants to tell their stories in a creative

Additionally the One Minutes produced during the workshop will serve as
a source of inspiration for a reportage competition on the effect of
borders in the lives of young people. The competition, organized by the
European Cultural Foundation and Villa Decius Association in Poland is
meant for journalists and photographers under 35 years of age from the
region. The results of twenty reportages along with the One Minute
Movies will be compiled into an exhibition that will open in October and
will afterwards be exhibited in several European countries.

Applications sent later than April 20th will not be taken into
consideration - the application form can be filled in in English or
Russian and is available online for download at

Please send the applications directly via email to Chris Schuepp -
cschuepp {AT} unicef.org, Coordinator of the Young People's Media Network in
Europe & Central Asia. 

UNICEF's Regional Office for the CEE/CIS and the European Cultural
Foundation will pay for all workshop-related expenses in Moldova.
