Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

As we study the characteristics of social problems,we find all social problems have common basis of origin.And the premise of all social problems is INEQUALITY(Individual,Cultural,Structural).We focus on how society operates,who benefits and who doesn't under existing social arrangements.We want to discuss,investigate,understand the nature of events & present scientific methods & classify them during this project.We target specific group:LGBT,Sex Workers,Physically Challenged.

Where will your idea take place?

Yerevan, Armenia

Why does Europe need your idea?

Describing the basic needs of humans(socially),they are:group support,esteem,respect,and self-actualization.We as society are obliged to provide these to all.Our target groups are sufferers of the hostile nature of society.The need is for constructionist claim in society that’s directed at facts,we challenge the abstract thought that some things are created by societies and those some beliefs owe to social values than they do to the evidence.We work to make it understand to common people.

What is your impact?

The main goal of this project is to draw pragmatic and scientific models of approach which can be taken out in the society in order to have a better understanding of the nature of these problems and vision to solve it.People will be part of solutions not only organisations or certain individuals.It will lead to change in standard behaviour and we will be able to define dignity of life.And embrace inequality on individual level and understand it rather than conflict it.

How do you get there?

During first 4 weeks we will target participants who will be part of the team for the next 16 weeks.After first 4 weeks,two groups will be formed of people from diverse ideology,orientation & gender & training will be conducted with them by experts.Coherently after 8 weeks first set of problems will be discussed.Documentary film making and working together of participants on public places,cooking,music & visual art activities,public film screening will be made,to share with wider audience about our project and the lives of our participants.Every 2 weeks we will compare the ideal situation (where we should be with where we will be).And divulge ourselves accordingly,a lot of activities will innovate during projects implementation.

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

Our target groups are LGBT members, Sex Workers, Physically Disabled.
Beneficiary will be whole society indirectly. Our audience will consist of all members of society, aged 18-45.

What makes your idea stand apart?

We are talking about inequality and not equality and make an interesting division that it IS the premise, but it is NOT the cause.We differentiate between 'what's consistent' and 'what's truth'.We will have direct involvement of all kind of citizens in our solution making.There are not many initiatives addressed to understanding the premise of existing problems.We analyze and afterwards elaborate models of approach to solve them.These characteristics makes our idea different from others.
