VOLPOWER - Zagreb Workshop
Will headed to Zagreb to lead a digital media workshop to kick off the VOLPOWER project.
VOLPOWER is an EU AMIF (Asylum and Migrant Integration Fund) funded two-year project. The project, lead by Glasgow Caledonian University, is looking at enhancing community building and social integration through dialogue and collaboration amongst young europeans and third country nationals.
One of the main aims for the project is to provide a platform for volunteers across Europe to share their stories. The 3 day workshop structured and ran by Will in collaboration with Julie Adair, Director of Digital Collaboration at GCU, covered photography, filming, editing and writing with the 50 volunteers from across Europe. Despite only travelling from 7 countries, over 21 different nationalities we represented at this fantastic event. Not only were some useful skills learnt, but we’re sure that life-long friends were made.
