~ Context is the King 🏰
▶️ Back to back the Media training traveled from Cyprus to Poland, from 26oC to 6oC, from a tourist destination to a welcoming local community.
▶️ 6th time doing this training equipped me with the confidence that this training curriculum came here to stay.
▶️ Getting new insights on how post-Covid Erasmus+ will look like. (Closing the group last minute, having 68 dropouts!)
▶️ This time the impact of the training in the local community of Drezdenko was the thing 🚀
▶️ Performing the very first Erasmus+ project in the region was a nice ✅
▶️ Working with an inexperienced association was actually the best thing that could happen to me because I always had endless support and engagement.
▶️ Having a group with no pros in videomaking was an incredible experience because the level of productions were way above any expectations due to the synergy and involvement in the group tasks.
▶️ During the training participants created 43 videos within 7 days of working with media and 4 of them for some local social initiatives.
▶️ All these we did with frugal production tricks (smartphones, gorillapods, puppets, lots of paper tape, and any equipment and prop available)
▶️ Having the chance to do things that I don’t usually do in trainings was at least something I will keep with me for long time (being welcomed with a red carpet and vodka (literally), meeting with the Mayor of the city, giving interview to the local TV, attending a dance performance for the third age university, and some other cool things).

Money is not the only currency existing. Time is also one and it is way more important.
Great reflection to finish the marathon of my projects and hibernate in Athens until the next trainings season in 2022.
