Prix Jeunesse’s best in children’s TV coming to Cyprus! 12-13 December 2011

The best of children’s television, honoured by the internationally-recognised Prix Jeunesse International competition, will feature in two days of screenings and seminars organised by the Goethe-Institut Cyprus, in partnership with the Association for Historical Dialogue and Research and the Cyprus Community Media Centre. The two-day event will take place on December 12th and 13th at the Home for Cooperation in Nicosia’s buffer zone starting from 9am. This is the first time a Prix Jeunesse International screening is being held in Cyprus, aimed at encouraging dialogue, a deeper understanding of quality in children’s media, and professional cooperation in the field of children’s media between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities. “Children in Europe spend an average of 150 minutes a day in front of the television, but are they watching programmes that are educational, stimulating, and age-appropriate?” said Björn Luley, director of the Goethe-Institut in Nicosia. “We want to showcase how children’s television can develop intercultural understanding in Cyprus and across the world.” Entries have been received from all over the world but there hasn’t been an entry from Cyprus yet. This event will hopefully encourage Cypriot media practitioners to enter the competition. The organisers are calling on children’s television producers, educators, journalists, researchers and media students from across the divide to attend the seminars and screenings. The films screened in Nicosia will be the winners of the most recent biennial Prix Jeunesse International film festival held last year in Munich under the theme ‘Different and Same – Celebrating Diversity.’ The programme for the seminar for adult experts on Monday, 12 December 2011 will be subdivided into different age categories: 12-15 year olds, 7-11 year olds and up to six years old. On Tuesday 13 December 2011 there will be screenings for schoolchildren aged 8-10 years old from 9-11am and screenings for parents and their children aged 6-12 years old from 5-7pm.

Wonder Women residency in Cyprus: apply by 15 June.

wwimageIn our society, the importance of news has shifted; some would argue that it has been elasticized or else devalued. As the blogosphere replaces the daily newspaper as the purveyor and distributor of breaking news, the reporting of events is no longer filtered by the journalist/editor. Instead the voice of news is replaced by a dynamic exchange of information.

Wonder Women is a residency program in its sixth year hosted by _gaia at their studio in Jersey City, NJ.  _gaia, an environment for creative process is dedicated to fostering women’s activism, art practice and study. The Wonder Women mission is to engage practicing, yet underrepresented artists who are eager to participate in a collective dialogue about art, media and identity. In January _gaia studio invited 10 New York & New Jersey based artists to participate in their residency program exploring the theme, ‘New News is Old News.’ Now that the work has been complete, its curators Doris Caçoilo and Maya Joseph-Goteiner along with some of the artists who participated will be hosted by Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC) members Rooftop Theatre Group, EMAA (European-Mediterranean Arts Association) and the CCMC  to stage a similar program with 6 artists in Cyprus. Beginning June 20th [through June 29th] accepted applicants will meet as a group in various locations island-wide. There will be group discussions addressing issues related to art, technology, history, current affairs with a specific focus on human trafficking and critique of works in progress.

Wonder Women invites 6 Cyprus-based artists to consider this new concept of real time media and the ramifications of our evolving relationship with news. Projects should address news and its media channels. 

To apply for the residency, please submit your proposals and portfolios to Wonder Women by Wednesday 15 June 2011. All details can be found here.
