This project aims to provide insight into the professional practice and professional practice support for emerging lens-based media practitioners through an Online Education program and local workshops as a means of driving creativity and innovation, as well as improving motivations and career prospects of young photographers.
They are seeking partnership with cultural organizations and higher education institutions form eastern Europe specialized in Humanities, Arts, New Media, Technology and Languages that support this initiative by providing administrative and technical expertise, artistic expertise, financial capabilities and venues to develop and expand this programme.
Partners should be able to engage people and reach targeted audiences locally, from emerging visual storytellers and lens-based media practitioners to new audience members, but also donors and volunteers in the community. Partnerships should also be able to enlarge the organizations’ networks beyond their immediate partners of this project.
They are particularly interested in organizations that promote Civilisation and Language studies, as well as interpretation and translation of Eastern Europe languages and work with native speaking linguists who could translate the educational content as a means of reaching a wider audience.
