One minute movies made within the project “Take us seriously – it’s about ability” were presented in Visegrad in the “Vuk Karadzic” primary school.
Movies, with the help of trainers from the Genesis Project, were designed and made by children fro these schools with and without
developmental disabilities. They participated in a five-day inclusive workshop on production of one-minute movies which aim to promote children’s rights and social inclusion with a focus on the abilities and rights of children with disabilities.
One minute movies were also filmed at the beginning of August in Brcko, and their production was attended by protégés of Centre for Mental Health from Brcko District and PRONI Center for youth development.
Children have pointed to the needs, problem, abilities and talent through this unique medium.
Project “Take us seriously – it’s about ability” is being implemented by the Genesis Project in cooperation with UNICEF BiH, USAID and the EC Delegation in BiH and is an integral part of the “It’s about ability” campaign.
A total of 12 workshops on the production of one-minute movies in various municipalities in BiH was planned.
Until now, one minute movies were made and presented in Banja Luka, Novi Grad Municipality from Sarajevo, Novi Travnik, Posusje, Derventa, Trnovo Municipality, Brcko and Visegrad.
Workshops with children in Sanski Most and East Sarajevo start today, and movies of these young authors will be presented on Friday. All movies are available on the UNICEF BiH YouTube channel.
