Workshop overview

This series of online workshops will support participants to reflect on their work in the context of health and well-being in order to identify what ‘good’ looks like and learn how to achieve it in practice.

There is an important role for arts, health and wellbeing post Covid-19 as a source of support for individuals and communities. Whether work supports mental health and wellbeing, tackles loneliness and isolation, or helps build community connectedness, there will be a strong need for it after the immediate crisis of Covid-19 has passed.

Yet, during times of economic insecurity, there will be challenges to face in terms of funding and resources for the arts. The ability to understand, articulate and assure the quality of work will become increasingly important.

This workshop programme will support participants to:

  • Reflect on their practice and develop a clear understanding of what ‘good’ looks like
  • Explore the conditions necessary to delivery high quality projects
  • Better understand how to embed quality in practice.
  • Negotiate effective partnerships based on a shared commitment to quality
  • Develop the confidence to promote and celebrate their work
  • Use a reflective approach to evaluation to ensure continued learning and development.
  • Look at ways in which we might embed and evidence quality in our work.

15 places available.

VIDEO EDITING AND STORYTELLING BASICS

Online workshop in three parts by Ralitsa Kamenova (23, 24 and 25.07.2020)
Enroll until 21th July, 2020. Availability is limited to 10 participants.
https://worldof.co/online-residency/#video-editing-workshop
Participation Fee: 30 EUR for the 3 sessions

Via structured sessions with examples and discussion this course will help you to communicate your ideas appropriately not only in video, but in general. You’ll get a sense of what are the basic rules and how you can experiment with them, or even break them.

Part 1: The Basics of Storytelling - lecture with discussion
23rd July | 16:00 UTC
Duration: 1 Hour
Sometimes an ambitious visual vision for your project isn’t enough. So how do you communicate this vision to your viewers? Discussing the very essential and crucial moments in storytelling as well as the basic techniques used in films.

Part 2: The Language of Cinema
24th July | 16:00 UTC
Duration: 1 Hour
Films and video art happen to be universal. Everyone around the globe should be able to understand the story you want to tell them. This is why we need to learn how to speak the Language of Cinema, so that one day we’ll write poems in it. As a language that consists of visuals, we’ll touch upon its different components such as cinematography, editing, sound and music,etc. How are these components helping us communicate the story better?

Part 3: Expanded cinema
25th July | 16:00 UTC
Duration: 1 Hour
After we’ve created a sense for traditional films, it’s time to take a look into the experimental ones. When we know all the basic rules of how films work, then we’re ready to break or even bend those rules. How a need for experimentation with films changed the face of cinema? Who are the people that were at the core of the modern video art and experimental films?

*After making the payment, you will receive confirmation e-mail with a private link for Zoom – where the session will be held.
