CRPRC Studiorum
(Skopje, Macedonia)

Studiorum’s New Media and the Society program has the goal to facilitate the process of development of civic skills through creative media, audiovisual arts, and socially engaged art-forms in general. Through the promotion of non-formal education methods relevant to democratic citizenship and European values, Studiorum's New Media program activities and projects strive for development of new approaches to education and civic engagement incorporating creative methods and arts.

The role of Studiorum within We are Visual! is to serve as a hub, providing the project partners with the essential tools, and the training and critical resources needed, so to develop the audiovisual tool-kits, as well as to coordinate the delivery of the joint program.

Movies that Matter (Amsterdam, the Netherlands)

Movies that Matter
(Amsterdam, the Netherlands)

The Movies that Matter Foundation, an initiative of Amnesty International, organizes wide-ranging film programs in which human rights take center stage. The key activity of the foundation is the Movies that Matter Festival in The Hague. Every year during the Movies that Matter Festival, a human rights film festival takes place which is specifically aimed at young people: the Young Amnesty Film Days. Also, Movies that Matter advises and supports educators in screening human rights films at schools. Movies that Matter films are usually supported by free and specific teaching aids which have been developed in collaboration with teachers and are therefore highly appreciated.

Based on its years-long experience, the Movies that Matter Education Department will transfer within the project the best practices in training teachers, preparing human rights audiovisual manuals as well as using audiovisual materials and documentaries in teaching human rights to young people. Its main expertise being both the development and the application of the teaching manuals for using film and audiovisual materials in human rights education and awareness-raising, the Movies that Matter Education Department will also organize a training workshop for the other project partners in Amsterdam and share the experiences gained in the realm of audio-visual human rights education.

MakeDox (Skopje, Macedonia)

MakeDox
(Skopje, Macedonia)

MakeDox, the festival for socially engaged cinema and documentary film was established in Skopje in 2009. A year later, a non-profit civil society organization with 25 members under the same name was officially registered with the mission to promote active citizenship and human rights through documentary films and art. What started as an enthusiastic intention of a group of documentary film lovers and activists in only two-year time has grown into a nationally and regionally-recognized film happening with over 60 film screenings per year, a regional open-air travelling cinema and workshops, master classes, round table discussions, as well as a year-long educational program for children and youth- MakeDox Junior. MakeDox Junior program consists of three projects: MakeDox Classroom, MakeDox in Chinematheque and MakeDox Film Clubs.

In the past three years through the Cinematheque project, MakeDox has presented 53 exceptional documentary films to around 6000 primary class students educating them about human rights, media skills and cinema culture. MakeDox Classroom program focuses on the use of socially engaged and documentary films in human rights education. MakeDox Junior team has successfully developed, produced and is implementing audiovisual educational tool-kit utilizing the use of socially engaged documentary films in sociology and civic education in the high school curricula. MakeDox Film Clubs is a project that will be launched in 2015 and will facilitate Human Rights films screenings, debates and activities organized by the youths themselves.

Internationale Filmtage der Menschenrechte e.V. (Nuremberg, Germany)

Internationale Filmtage der Menschenrechte e.V.
(Nuremberg, Germany)

Internationale Filmtage der Menschenrechte e.V. organizes the Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF) and its 4-part school project Open Eyes. The Open Eyes school screenings present exceptional films which educate students about human rights issues and strengthen their media skills. All film screenings are accompanied pedagogically and followed by discussions between the students on one hand, and the filmmaker, the protagonist or a human rights expert on the other. The Open Eyes Youth Jury is composed of 5 students who watch the selected festival films in special screenings, discuss them and select the film they believe to be best suited for human rights education in schools. The Open Eyes Youth Reporters report each on a festival film while experienced journalists lend editorial support and publish their reviews in the newspaper. A one-day film studies seminar for teachers aims to increase their film literacy and enable them to follow-up on the screenings in their schools in an informed way.

The Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF) and precisely its school project Open Eyes experts will actively participate in the development of the joint Audio-Visual Human Rights Education Toolkit by transferring its experience and know-how to the project partners and thus, contributing to their professional development and building of expertise. The Nuremberg Human Rights festival will also host a training for all the project partners in Germany, inviting key European stakeholders and experts in formal and informal human rights education, which alongside the final project event in Skopje, should set the foundations of the future Audio-Visual Human Rights Education network in Europe.
