48 hours of Imagination!
The weekend of the 7th and 8th of July 2012 marks the pilot of five Imagination Studio ideas: غرام، صحبة، مشوار، خبرية، دردشة. The pilot platform is an Imagination Bus, which transports the five ideas to two regions in Lebanon: Jbeil and Zahleh. When the bus arrives to its destination, Imaginers set up a pop-up Imagination Market. Each idea has a booth within the market, and invites youth to experience what is it is like to participate in the idea there and then. We are very interested in the feedback that youth give us, and in evaluating the impact that our ideas have on integration behaviours in the areas we’re visiting. This helps us improve and iterate the ideas on a small scale early on, before time and money is invested in implementing them on a large scale and longer term.
This is the Media & Influence idea we will be testing at the booth:
خبرية: A crowd-sourced e-channel goes live for 48 hours only. At the booth, youth are invited to generate video/photo/written/visual content instantly. They are provided with tools and human resources such as cameras, reporters, performers, journalists, to support them in covering their stories. Content is uploaded instantly on the blog and shared via social media platforms. Visit the e-channel and submit your own content here.
