Discriminations off the pocket
Discriminations off the pocket is an educational project raising awareness of discrimination in society. The project aims to young people between 13 to 26 of all genders, social and cultural backgrounds, and nationalities. It focuses on both formal (lycées) and non-formal education (e.g. maisons de jeunes).
The participants will work in small groups using their smartphones to create short films – “pocket films”. Social media and smartphones are usually seen as something negative; the project shows how to use them differently. We want to present them as tools that enable expressing ideas to fight discrimination, clichés, and stereotypes we still have in modern society.
The short films will be shared on social networks bringing their message to a broad audience, and finally, they will be a part of a national short film competition.
