ABOUT THE EVENT

The project „CHANNEL CHANCES – IMAGES NUMÉRIQUES | DIGITALE BILDER“ brought about 30 young people (age 16-27 years) from France and Germany together digitally. The aim was to critically reflect on the changes in communication caused by new media and technologies in an open-ended way. What emotions can images on e.g. Instagram or Facebook create? Successful influencers and media experts were invited to give inputs as speakers and accompany the young people’s reflection. Together, we found out more about the risks and chances the new media and communication channels offer us. The event took place on 16th, 18th & 23rd March 2021 from 5:00 – 8:15 pm each.
