Learning all together!

On Saturday (18 February) U.S.B. organized a seminar on the topic:  “Integrated campaign – social issues and new media”. Our office was full with young and motivated people to work.

We showed them how to make radio shows, artistic photography and short movies. Part of the topics was connected with young people, social issues, LGBT rights. During the day the participants were divided into different groups and worked together to create their media products. At the end of the day we all enjoyed their beautiful photos, interesting radio show with interviews with different people and a short movie on LGBT issues called “The hidden love” – u can see it here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Y8DdoObNT0&feature=related )
