A significant part of our time here at Viadrinicum's PeaceLab was spent working on individual or group projects. Our lab leaders gave us various tools to help us shape the stories we wanted to tell. Film editing, storymapping, documentary theatre, through these mediums we were challenged both to reflect on our experience as as well as on how we can start bridging the gap between media, the arts, academia and civil society.
What follows is a number of our projects.
Be kind: we only had two weeks to work on them.
But also be generous: every single piece here is a window into the mind of a person who may be deeply affected by conflict. These are people who travelled halfway across the continent (or the world) to be here, to listen to everything our lecturers had to say, to create. Some of these are quite personal. All of of them happen somewhere on a crossroads.
