Arab Digital Expression Camps looking for trainers

Manal's picture

Not sure if this will be relevant to most of you, but I think some of you might be interested. Here it is ...

The project covers four training tracks of which each camper will choose one:

  • digital filmmaking,
  • graphic design,
  • digital sound and music
  • and web design.

Arab Digital Expression Camps combines an unprecedented team of talented Arab experts in film, music, design, education and technology who have worked for over a year to develop the project's concept, methodology and curricula. This team of around 50 renowned experts from different Arab countries has developed a product that could well serve to constitute a basis for digital arts and digital expression education for Arab youth.

The curriculum developers will conduct a one week training session for short listed trainers prior to each camp to orient trainers on the respective curricula.

The camps will take place over two sessions, the first beginning July 8 - 28, 2007 and the second August 4 - 24, 2007.

University students and/or fresh graduates in any of the four tracks offered at our camps who are serious about advancing their careers will have the opportunity to be trained by this group of experts. They will gain firsthand theory and experience from the experts themselves and then apply what they learned during the three weeks of training they conduct with children.

Four trainers are allocated for each track ­ which includes 40 campers aged between 12 and 15 to cover both the field work and lab work planned for training.

Trainers are being recruited from different Arab countries. Therefore, in addition to the training experience, trainers will have the opportunity to meet Arab colleagues working in similar fields. This will contribute to promoting stronger ties with such colleagues and potentially collaborative work.

The following is a description of the trainers' and camps' workshop. It is a very intense program and requires a lot of dedication and commitment on the trainers' behalf. The applicant should be aware and responsible of the implication of such a commitment.
