Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

A travel through the many different villages in Europe. Photographies and stories, Virtual Reality, and the real-time streaming of a modern troubadour that will bring the people of Europe closer to each other.

Where will your idea take place?

Spain, France, Germany

Why does Europe need your idea?

Time is collapsing. The past is not the past anymore. Neither is the future. Instead, everything works at the same time now. The past is half an hour ago. The future is a couple of minutes away from this moment. We live in a world of connection and at the same time we feel more disconnected than ever. We want to connect Europeans - not through words but through stories.

What is your impact?

We want to tell a story, we want to show everyone that every country in Europe is different yet shares similarities linked to its history. We want to stir them, we want to encourage them to explore, to talk to people, to walk out of the beaten path. We want to gather people in town-squares listening to the stories of the troubadour, and we want to gather people online to read and live and travel with him.

How do you get there?

1) Look for sponsors (for example, tech companies that would like to be linked with the project) and collaborators;
2) Build up hype online while planning the trip;
3) Travel through the countries for two years visiting a small town every day and notifying majors
