Just as we could offer a workshop for German and refugee school children last year, we are happy to be able to similarly implement two different media projects in 2017. Here, the youth will work together and through it can develop a better understanding of one another. Aided by artists and film score composers, independent film contributions will emerge out of weeklong workshops during June and September 2017. In the first workshop, word-e-scape, it is about analysis with word and speech. In the second workshop sonONOlux the youths’ silent films will be set to music will the help of instruments. Both the films will be presented during the festival as well as the work of word-e-scape- Workshops be presented and exhibited at the students’ schools. The workshops will be under the care of Eunice Martins, Laura Mello, Heidrun Schramm und Nicolas Wiese.
