1-15 August, 2018
The course includes five sessions, each two-hours long, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, between 1 and 15 August — however the participants will be also asked to attend the artistic events in between the sessions (timings and locations of those events will be agreed upon according to the course’s needs and the participant’s ability).
Fees for attending the artistic events are included in the course’s price.
Target age: 13-18 though we also accept people a bit younger who see they fit and can cope with the course’s programme.
The participants will have an opportunity to interact with the artists and will get to know some ‘behind-the-scenes’ of the artistic world.
The pieces written by the young participants will be published at the Cutograph’s website and promoted on the Cultograph’s social media.
The course will introduce the participants to the English language media with focus on arts and culture: newspapers and magazines, and the dynamics of journalism. It will create a basic understanding of journalistic values and formats (news, interviews, reporting) and will invite the participants to produce works that reflect the journalistic standards.
