Young creatives in the domains of photography, videography, writing, illustration, audio, and podcasting between the ages of 22 and 35 are invited to participate in the workshop program “Stories 4 Change” with FOTEA and Oxfam.
We want to hear from you if you work in the creative industries, are a storyteller, or aspire to be one, and you’re interested in developing new talents, gaining priceless experience, and giving the world new viewpoints on pressing global issues.
Young makers will be brought together by Stories 4 Change to explore various narratives and mediums while working with business leaders to create ideas that are ready to be pitched and displayed to the public. Your stories matter, and we want to support you in telling them more effectively.
Young professionals with some professional experience and a foundational set of technical abilities should participate. Additionally, you should be enthusiastic about investigating and collaborating on the documentation of public, social, economic, and political issues. The program will last from February through July for a total of six months, during which time participants will be required to dedicate a sizable amount of time. To help with costs, stipends will be offered.
