We invite youth organisations, schools, NGO’s and art institutions to request a workshop so young people can create one-minute videos.
In five-day workshops video artists teach basic camera and directing skills, story-telling, teamwork and how to think creatively. Each participant develops his/her own story and produces a sixty-second video that is screened at the conclusion of the workshop.
It is also possible to combine the workshop with a Training for Trainers.
Some of our workshops are thematic. Thematic workshop examples: social change, gender equality, tolerance, health, education, violence, juvenile justice, refugees, disabilities, child trafficking and sexual exploitation, HIV/AIDS, children with disabilities, climate change, water/hygiene/sanitation, children in detention and institutional care.
Videos produced during workshops have gone viral on social media and been screened, to great effect, at a wide range of advocacy and fundraising events. They have been shown in venues as lofty as the UN General Assembly and as humble as village schoolrooms, raising awareness, inspiring creativity and influencing decision-makers. Workshops, films and filmmakers have made the news in local, national and international media.
All the video’s produced will participate in our international competition, and have the chance of winning a weekend in Amsterdam to receive the Tommy Award.

We have been working with UNICEF, Cinekid, IDFA, Plan Africa, Save the Children, amongst others. Nearly 4,000 youngsters from 100 countries have taken part in the programme since its inception in 2002.
