The initiative group decided to create a youth public organization "Young Community - Moloda Gromada". The priority is to take into account the interests of young people everywhere, to establish information interaction, to establish partnerships, to strengthen and build up potential.
To draw the attention of the public and local authorities to the issues of support and implementation of youth initiatives within the framework of the project. Attract grants and sponsorships to organize open youth spaces. Provide the material and technical base for arranging the youth space according to the coworking system. To create conditions for attracting young people to regular visits to the open youth space "Young Community - Young Community" with an emphasis on creating a photo and video studio.
The problem we are trying to solve:
Today in Semyonovka there is no open area for leisure and communication of young people. Therefore, there is nowhere to organize their leisure time for young people. To remove young people from the "street" and offer them productive and creative leisure, our task is number 1. The direction young people have chosen themselves - this is an occupation. The project will help not only unite the youth of the village and possibly reduce the outflow of youth to the city, but also make it proactive with a responsible civic position, whose huge potential will be directed to the development of the territory.
"The idea of creating an interactive photo-video studio has existed for a long time, initiated by the youth of the village of Semenivka, who visits the local center of culture and sports. This is motivated by the fact that rural youth are limited in the possibility of self-realization and seek more accessible, sometimes even harmful forms of self-expression. Photo and video shooting have become a part of our lives today. For some it is a profession, for others it is an opportunity fill family albums with photos and video collections with CDs of memorable events, and for someone else a hobby, a way of self-affirmation and self-expression. Usually photos and videos of amateurs do not have that expressiveness that would have artistic value. To create such images it is necessary to have not only technical knowledge characteristics of the equipment, to study the technology of processes, but also to pay special attention to the issues of fine arts art, to master the means of artistic reflection. The speed of scientific and technological progress requires a person to new rhythms of life, other volumes of knowledge, the ability to find a way out of many difficult situations and the ability to express themselves. Everything is possible only for a person who is at a high level of social development, is able to make unusual decisions, thinks creatively. It is necessary to begin education of the creative personality as early as possible."
The solution we are proposing:
The implementation of the project will have a positive impact on local infrastructure. Also, the implementation of the project will increase the number and diversity of youth associations, will promote their institutionalization in the form of youth associations. In turn, the appearance of a photo-video studio will have a positive impact on the involvement of young residents to participate in community life.
1 video photo studio will be created. More than 100 residents of the village. Semyonovka will have the opportunity to work out and improve their habits robots with photo and video equipment, Internet resources. More than 10000 local residents will understand and see the activities of the video photo studio.
"Attraction of sponsorship and grant assistance. Since 2020, the initiative group has been gathering in the building of the Semenovskaya Library, with a total area of 60 m2, free of charge. A room after a major overhaul, where there is a place for the equipment of an open youth space, a photo and video studio. There is very little left for this room to become a multifunctional platform for full-fledged leisure and communication of young people. We decided to zone the premises according to the studio method."The results of the project will contribute to the creation of a sustainable platform for communication and joint work in the form of the most socially active part of the community, its youth."
What success looks like for us:
The project will help to unite the youth of the village and possibly reduce the outflow of youth to the city, make them proactive with a responsible civic position, whose huge potential will be directed to the development of the territory. In particular, the creation of a video photo studio for the production of positive information content aimed at spreading ideas of a healthy lifestyle, personal development, career guidance, professional growth, family values.
