|UNESCO's communications manager Mr. Paul Hector in an organized multimedia training class at the CRDA building! Such trainings accompanied with workshops are having a good impact in groups of young people! 1. Mr. Solomon is showing to the young participants the use of Adobe's Photoshop! 2. A combination of training together with workshops gave excellent results! 3. The installation of the HP high resolution printer-scanners an extremely useful tool for the young designers! Supported by||UNESCO's Addis Ababa Office in concert with Ltd, a communications firm is organizing multimedia training workshops in Addis Ababa for rural Community multimedia centers (CMCs) in Ethiopia. The workshop will focus on reinforcing skills and capacities of 12 young men and women coming from the UNESCO centers located in the towns of Bahir Dar, Lalibela and Harar. In addition to being exposed to the underlying technical skills and theory behind using Video cameras, digital photo cameras, and PCs with audio-visual editing software, participants will have ample opportunities to gain hands-on experience in creating multimedia products in local languages addressing local development issues. In September, a two week training was organized by Mr. Paul Hector UNESCO's communications manager at TSALKE's office for 8 young participants from the weavers group in Suromeda! The weavers group comprised from young artists and 'loom' enthusiasts mainly from the Arbaminch area working with traditional looms! Generation after generation this profession is taught at homes or local traditional workshops! The participants had the opportunity to familiarize themselves and create new designs as well as learning ways to manipulate various settings using Adobe's Photoshop! In addition they have benefited from the everyday workshops offered to store and print a number of new designs! Two 'workstation' PCs were donated by UNESCO in order to assist the weavers in order to develop new designs as well as archiving them for future use! The HP high resolution printer-scanners proved very useful as well as the demand to distribute the new designs and follow an optical approval/correction by the group's skilled designers is important!

training for a mixed group
CMCs in Ethiopia and other developing countries face great difficulties
in ensuring their long-term financial sustainability after the initial
seed project funding that created them dries up. With this lesson in
mind, the workshop will also be seeking to expose participants to the
concept of social enterprise and encourage them in identifying ways in
which the skills developed in the workshop can be used to both provide
meaningful and beneficial services to their respective communities while
at the same time providing opportunities for revenue generation,
part-time or even full-time employment and the longer term sustenance of
the CMC concept.
Hopefully, the sharing of experiences and meeting of these creative
young minds will provide new, rich and innovative locally relevant
insights to the challenge of sustainability.

The workshop will seek to build on experiences gained in a previous training conducted for the Harar CMC in conjunction with the Harar Regional Bureau for Youth, Sports and Culture which oversees the operation of the Harar CMC and to share their experiences in social enterprise with the Bahir Dar group. One outcome of this earlier workshop was the production of a VCD highlighting various aspects of the history and culture of the city of Harar and which is now being sold to tourists and visitors. The Harar CMC is also pursuing plans to design and print t-shirts which can provide other streams of revenue in addition to the traditional offerings of ICT courses and printing services.

The idea was to produce a promotional CD / DVD about all aspects of Harar and at same time to give means and knowledge to a local team of creative individuals in order to be able to involve themselves in future productions. The overall training program included filming, editing and authoring interactive CDs in order to finally produce CDs and DVDs with local content. The last part of this training course was held in CRDA compound here in Addis Abeba with six participants from Harar and one participant from Addis itself. The scope of this final session of the Multimedia training was to conclude all subjects taught in the previous sessions using Adobe's Photoshop and Premiere as well as Macromedia's Director. We had also to put together all edited material filmed previously on location and produce the final interactive CD using Macromedia's Director ! This proved to be a difficult task as we had to record and insert all 'voice over' audio parts in video clips needing narration as well as to correct all spelling and historical mistakes! But with the help of the Hareri team we manage to overcome all problems, complete this difficult task and successfully produce the interactive CD during this final session! Supported by Back to top|
