Experience: Katarina Marković

Together with Balša Vučelić, Lorena Ujkić and Bogdan Markuš, I had the opportunity to be a part of the Erasmus + program for the first time in the period from July 26th till August 2nd, 2021, and together with representatives from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Albania, Bulgaria, Turkey and Italy, I will participate in the training within the project “Structured Learning for Awareness in Media”.

We started the project on the terrace of the Hotel “Le Vele” with a view of the beautiful sea, which made us feel even more pleasant and beautiful. We started by getting to know each other, and everyone said something about themselves. The goal for all of us was to raise people’s awareness of the role of the mass media when it comes to migrants and refugees, and how we can help people think twice before reaching a conclusion based on the content offered by the media. We worked on the topic through various creative workshops, everything was designed so that we all learn something new in a fun way, to express our talents, improve experience and knowledge, and even make new friends. We all had the opportunity to express our opinions, ideas and put them into practice.

We had the opportunity to get to know the small town of Stintino on the coast, which exudes beauty and tradition. In addition to the daily workshops, last night we had an intercultural evening where each participant had the opportunity to present their country.
