In 2002, The One Minutes Foundation and the European Cultural Foundation established The One Minutes Jr. network. It has been supported by ECF and UNICEF as a new tool for youth empowerment and social change.
In week-long workshops, underprivileged and marginalised young people aged 12 and over from all over the world get a chance to express themselves by making one-minute films. They are taught by art students from the Sandberg Instituut, who receive training from us. For the students, getting to know new cultures and people through the Unicef network is an experience of incalculable value.
Though other media-based projects for young people exist, no other programme on this scale takes the artistic approach of bringing children together with young video artists.
The One Minutes Jr. is a project of The One Minutes Foundation.
