Medialab Junior was a project, that included three different types of workshops aimed at youth. During the workshops, young people, using open source software and new technologies, learnt creative cooperation and gained knowledge and skills necessary to become active creators of culture.
Every workshop series consisted of six three-hour meetings and was conducted by two trainers – a specialist in the technology field and an animator-teacher.
Educational activities realized as a part od this project initiated changes in workshop participants’ behavior (overcoming the barriers, building self-confidence and faith in own abilities) and encouraged them to create cultural content. The workshops also contributed to reducing digital exclusion among young people.
