Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg is the biggest riverine island in Europe and a vivid multicultural neighbourhood, where people from 192 countries live. Projects and events, like IBA, Dockville/Artville or 48h Wilhelmsburg, have been influencing various places, people and themes in the neighbourhood. The housing and integration of a high number of refugees also concerns the people in Wilhelmsburg.
Your job is to catch on film, what is special about Wilhelmsburg, in particular how people, who live and work here, cope with the sociocultural changes and challenges in Wilhelmsburg.
Experienced media educators will support you in developing your ideas in three groups of 4 to 5 people each, learning how to handle camera technology and editing scenes. Towards the end of the project you will show your contributions in your own show, which will be broadcasted in Hamburg's citizen television TIDE (www.tidenet.de).
To prepare for the work camp, please take a look at the following websites and develop three ideas, which projects and events or socio-cultural and social topics of the Wilhelmsburg district you would like to depict on film.
Please send your ideas by 28th of June to the camp leaders, who contact you about 4 weeks before the start of the camp.
We would like you to show different angles to the story and make and effort to give a voice to people who are rarely listened to.
If you want to get a glimpse of what it's like, you can take a look at the films produced in previous workshops:
