28: Communication without borders – Intercultural friendship in children’s eyes
Arts Information Center,Soros Foundation,Frunze Museum, Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

In the frame of the project „Multilingual Education in Kyrgyzstan“ CIMERA is organising an exhibition of children’s drawings on the topic “How I talk with my friends”. The artists – children from two countries, Kyrgyzstan and Switzerland – all attend multilingual classes.
Through drawing, children can express all their ideas freely, without any of the restrictions that might come from limited competencies in one or the other language and they can communicate their own view of the world. More than anything else, drawing can tell us about children’s feelings and thoughts.
One of the main goals of the “Multilingual Education in Kyrgyzstan” project is to develop and enrich intercultural relationships between peoples, starting in early childhood. The exhibition marks the beginning of a bridge of friendship between children of various nations.
The exhibition started in the city of Osh, Kyrgyzstan, where it took place in September 2003.
The second stage of the exhibition is taking place from November 28 to December 6 2003 in the Arts Information Centre of the Soros Foundation (Frunze Museum) in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
After that the exhibition will also be shown in Switzerland.

26-27: Mass-media transformation in post-soviet conditions
 CMI, Yerevan, Armenia and CIMERA, Geneva, Switzerland 

The last decade has brought revolutionary changes to the media sector and the professional practice of journalists working in post-Soviet societies. The collapse of Soviet censorship, the emergence of new independent states and the new rhythm given to communication thanks to the new technologies, have transformed the profession and the work conditions of journalists beyond recognition.

After initial successes in the last years of Glasnost and in the early nineties, the media sector finds itself in a very deep crisis. Although the profession played an important role in revealing what was still taboo in the Soviet society - from Stalinism to environmental damage – today mass media are in most cases unable to shape public opinion or lead debates in their societies, and have lost the popular trust they enjoyed a decade ago.

What is it that has lead mass media into such a difficult situation? What role does the state play in this sphere? How does the new market environment affect mass media? What is needed in order to secure independence of journalists? How are new technologies transforming the media scene? And what are the individual stories of journalists and their media institutions in the newly independent republics?

In order to discuss those questions, the CMI in collaboration with CIMERA is organizing an international conference on September 26-27 in Yerevan. The conference will bring together over 20 media experts, journalism professors, researchers, and reporters from various CIS countries, Iran, Eastern and Western Europe, and the US.

Working languages are Russian and English.
Conference proceedings will be published in Russian and English.

Using the resources at www.archive.org, the US Internet archive, it will compare early versions of these news services with current versions to illustrate how and why these sites have developed towards a news-driven user-focused service.

The user and online news
Based on the STeM/MUDIA research report, Online News Media and Their Audiences, this session will explore in more detail the way in which news services have attempted to interact with users and the impact this interaction has on models of news delivery.

Practical evaluation of trends
Group work critical evaluation of selected news sites. (Practical work)

Group discussion of selected news sites

Developments in the wider multimedia arena
An overview of other aspects of the wider MUDIA research including mobile delivery, interactive television and future trends.


Day 2:  9:00am-5:00pm  

Producing news in multimedia newsrooms

This session will examine the new modes of production in online news. What is driving change in the newsroom? Does an online journalist require different training, different skills? What has ‘old’ journalism brought to the new medium? What are the new ethical considerations?

Guest speaker Armenianow.com
A practical example of the challenges and success of a net-native online news service.

Unexpected success?
This session will focus on the development of news services such as Weblogs, and Internet radio. Are we getting better news? Can local news have an international reach?

Drawing out best practice
Based on participants' experience and evaluation this final session will develop a framework for best practice in online news delivery.

Day 3:

FULL-DAY PRACTICAL WORKSHOP ON CREATING USER-ORIENTED INTERACTIVE NEWS.
Working in small teams the workshop participants will produce news stories built around the interactive functions and trends developed during the first two days of the course. Using traditional journalism skills in an online environment this session will give practical experience in producing multimedia news stories incorporating user feedback, discussion, audio and photography to illustrate how online news stories can create added value for the user and also shape the way in which a news story can be told. The stories will be published online as a mini-site and, depending on outcomes, inform the possibility of bringing more interactive news content to the main CMI site.
