WE ARE VISUAL

TELL ME AND I’LL FORGET
SHOW ME AND I MIGHT REMEMBER
INVOLVE ME AND I WILL UNDERSTAND

The We are Visual – education and audio visualization of human rights” project aims to put this proverb into practice within the formal and informal human rights education. The project is our humble contribution to the efforts to use the power of the audio-visual medium as a teaching aid in the process of acquiring, canalizing and transferring relevant and sound information, knowledge, viewpoints and values that would lead to experiential learning of the complexity of human rights.

The first part of the project was realized from 2012-2014 in a partnership project among MakeDox, Studiorum (Skopje), Dokument (Glasgow), NIHRFF (Nuremberg) and Movies that Matter (Amsterdam) supported by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Union. Included various forms of capacity building, networking and knowledge exchange and production of Human Rights Audiovisual Educational Toolkit.

The second part of the project is implemented by MakeDox and DokuFest and financed by the EIDHR program of the European Union. The project will be realized from June 2016 to January 2018 and will include training, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the project as well as organization of an International Conference on the use of audio – visual content in education.

The WeAreVisual Human Rights Audiovisual Toolkit is consisted of 12 creative documentary films and a teaching manual for the formal and non-formal educators of youths aged 12-18.

The carefully made selection of twelve creative documentary films brings creative fragments of the reality these films testify about. They do not only make the viewer relate to the screened reality both cognitively and emotionally but also urges him/her to leave the position of a passive consumer. The creative documentary film simply provokes reflection and discussion, asks for comments and opposing views while its authenticity tempts the viewer to imagine and further clarify the reality before arranging it in the drawers of one’s own knowledge. We believe that this process goes hand in hand with critical consumption and moderated evaluation. In the approach to the documentary film these are essential so that its content, which is often multilayered and non-standardly presented, could be stratified, explained and remembered. Therefore, we are suggesting interactive activities that would further catalyze this experiential process.
