Hungary: Fairy Garden in Pereces
The project will accompany the starting Fairy Garden program (competence-improving workshops and camps for pupils, 3D-animation about the historic Pereces). We would like to extend this program (with participation of insiders and outsiders) with creating, maintaning and refreshing a new blog and the related social network (Twitter). We provide digital competence-imporving trainings to reach this goal.
What locality or neighborhood will your project focus on?
Describe the specific community with whom you will be working.
Our target group are the inhabitants of Miskolc-Pereces. Pereces, the former independent miner’s settlement is since 1950 part of Miskolc. The development of the settlement isn’t a priority task for the city council. Most of the inhabitants are unemployed and hopeless, and this situation is paired with underdeveloped infrastructure and low online activity. So, the target group hasn’t got the competencies and the instruments to rise its voice.
What kinds of news, stories and other content will be created?
Introducing of moments, events that were/are important in the past, present and future of Pereces. Reflexions about the local endowments. Posts about the common symptoms and their evaulation. Introducing the “private recent-past”. Post about the problems and interests of the locals. Take a look on the outside world: introducing good practices. Introducing new, useful digital devices/services for the locals, through their own experiences.
What technologies and digital tools do you plan to use in the trainings?
Describe the connections that you or your organization have already established that will contribute to the success of the project.
Our organization works since 2006. We maintain a house for community purposes, which is the home of more unprompted groups. We run more voluntary and youth programs. So we know very well the local problems, and also the local businessmen and organizations. Through this project we would like to assist the establishing of more formal and informal groups (eg. Twitter-groups for the workshops), and we would like to build new partnerships.
How many participants do you think will be involved in your project?
In Pereces we count for 100 participant. We can stay in contact with them through the leaders of the different workshops.
The involving will be at first point personal, but we also plan posters, flyers, and publish the call on our blog and informal mailing lists.
For the maintenance of the program at first point we would like use a Twitter-group.
Besides the microgrant funding, what other resources and support are you seeking for your project to ensure its success?
Any kind of support is kindly accepted: granting access for relevant information for the actual project, any kind of advise, technical development, etc.
