November 19 – November 26, 2015
23.10.2015, Berlin | In 2015, C/O Berlin has extended its non-profit work in the field of cultural education and launched the new programm Perspectives for children and youths living in socially disadvantaged situations. With support from the Schering Stiftung, C/O Berlin organized several workshops that were realized in cooperation with the children’s homes of the AWO (Workers’ Welfare Association) Strausberg, the Girls Move Project for girls who are not regularly attending classes, the refugee shelter in Neu-Westend’s Soorstraße, and “welcome classes” in Berlin’s Schöneberg and Weissensee districts. The results from these workshops will be presented to the public on November 19, 2015, 5–8 p.m., on November 26, 2015, 5–8 p.m., and by personal agreement.
For many years, C/O Berlin has been known not only for its outstanding exhibitions of international photographers and artists, but also for its nurturing of young talents and its dedicated, professional work in the field of cultural education. In 2012, C/O Berlin began an initial pilot project for Perspectives, gaining important experience and developing a long-term concept for the years ahead. The workshops aim to provide children and youths from socially disadvantaged backgrounds – among them many participants from the recent refugee families – with an opportunity to get to know film and photography techniques, train their visual skills, and express their ideas creatively under the guidance of professionals. In the C/O Berlin workshops specifically developed for this target group, the children not only learn how to handle a camera and how to closely observe their environment, they also discover their own creative skills.
Final workshop presentation:
November 19, 2015, 5–8 p.m.
November 26, 2015, 5–8 p.m.
and by personal agreement from November 20–26, 2015, at firstname.lastname@example.org
