ABOUT THE SCHOOL
The School of New Media is a special project of the Laboratory of Journalism, which is being implemented within the framework of the educational direction of Winzavod. Education carried out using a grant from the President of the Russian Federation, provided by the Presidential Grant Fund.
The School of New Media consists of two stages: an online course and an intensive session in Moscow. The main goal of the project is to develop skills of working with new media among novice authors.
The online course, which runs from October 1 to November 15, was designed specifically for the School: the educational block consists of 16 lectures with practical assignments from experts, including representatives of various media, from TV producers to YouTube bloggers. Each lecture is accompanied by the author's visual material prepared by the project experts.
Upon completion of the online course, the School experts will sel ect the 15 best projects to be implemented within the Intensive Session. At the session, participants together with the experts will finalize their projects, take an additional course of lectures and master classes, and will be able to publish materials about their work on the resources of the Winery and partners of the School.
Sofia Trotsenko, President of Winzavod Fund of Contemporary Art Support:
"The School of New Media will continue the direction of education, namely the support of authors who write about culture. Together with experts, professionals from the media industry, the participants will implement a project about a significant cultural event in their region. These could be podcasts, YouTube shows, interviews, longrides, any modern media formats in general.
The project has a special role - it is an important tool that the professional community needs in order to stay in touch, to make possible communication between writers from different parts of the country. Whatever the location, we need a constant cultural dialogue.
