Proposals in Netherlands

Netherlands: Undercover Peacebuilders

Undercover Peacebuilders empowers young activists to collect stories of hidden peacebuilders in their local communities and spread it online. The project is a follow-up of a digital storytelling workshop, allowing them to put the learned skills into practice and connecting them to issues important to their communities. The participants will act as loudspeakers for a peacemaker in the community who traditionally has no voice beyond it. Our vision is to link digital skills of young activists to locals with a meaningful story to give them a voice and tell the unique reality of a community online.

Netherlands: Unite Ukrainian community in the Netherlands

This project aims to support Ukrainians in the Netherlands, to contribute to the formation of our diaspora through the maintenance of the existing online platform www.maidan.nl & the organization of the offline Ukrainian community centers. Our goals: 1) distribute trustful information about Ukraine, resist to anti-Ukrainian propaganda that appears on world media; 2) inform about events & activities related to Ukraine and the community in the NL; 3) provide coordination and support self-organization of various grassroots projects; 4) give community a voice – petitions; 5) share ideas/experience

Netherlands: A Day in Her Life

A Day in Her Life will be a multimedia project by non-profit organization Voices of Women Media. The project seeks to empower women working in Amsterdam’s Red Light District by training them to use media tools to tell their stories. We want to provide an opportunity for participants to have a voice and express themselves in a creative way. Participants will create a multimedia body of work that they themselves will disseminate in their communities to raise awareness, thereby developing advocacy skills and challenging mainstream stereotypes and stigmas surrounding the sex industry.
