Idea Sketch | Proposal

Proposal

Idea pitch

We have improved a project idea in order to “shatter” stereotypes about different groups that they felt have been placed on them. Our member organizations will create a film-maker team and each team will take interviews in their own country to identify stereotypes those are specific to their community. Then we collect all videos and share them with each-other. In the second part of the project each team will find people who can prove these stereotypes wrong and make documentary films about them.

Where will your idea take place?

Baku, Azerbaijan

Why does Europe need your idea?

People are often discriminated against when they do not fit into narrow stereotypes. There may be different stereotypes based on sex, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, ability, gender identity, or education. Lack of соmmunication resulted from formulaic imagination, lеаds humans to the wrоng perсерtion of what other natiоns, cultures рresent itself. Mass media, propaganda tools, and old sterеоtypes: it all аррears to be an object that slows down people from moving clоser to еасh other.

What is your impact?

We believe that the voice of the people who face harsh stereotypes can be heard. They should have an opportunity for redefining themselves and to gain social confidence. Our mission is to change the way society labels and limits all of us and to create more opportunities for everyone to reach their potential - regardless of gender, race, class, sexual orientation, all of those things. With our project we will fight against stereotypes.

How do you get there?

In the first part of the project our member organizations will create film-maker teams and each team will take interviews in their own country to identify stereotypes those are specific to their community. Then we collect all videos and share them with each-other. In the second part of the project each team will find people from who can prove these stereotypes wrong and make documentary films about them.Then we will place all interview videos, films on YouTube, thus people in different parts of the world will watch our videos and will have an opportunity to join to our campaign. "Leave your prejudice" always will be an asset for those who want to join the company.
