"Scenes and sounds of my city" Special Session 2006
Written by Steve Dietz   
Apr 20, 2006 at 10:10 PM

International Call for Participation

Deadline 3 may 2006


The UNESCO DigiArts Team invites young students and teachers to reflect on the theme of "scenes and sounds of my city" and to send to UNESCO a joint project proposal in group work that focuses on a specific topic or issue in relation to their urban environment or their experiences within urban surroundings.

This project will be realized through a running session of the Scenes and Sounds of My City web-based learning application, which is designed for young people (12-18 years old) to collaboratively use creative digital tools in expressing their visions on urban topics.

Through participation in this session, young people will have opportunities to:

  1. Express their ideas, reflections, viewpoints on their own urban environment through creative productions using digital media
  2. Interact with their young peers from different regions, countries, cultures
  3. Use ICT resources and creative tools and obtain skills of manipulating different digital and online applications.


At the end of the session, the best projects will be selected and presented at an international electronic arts festival. A number of young delegates among the participants will also be invited to this festival to transform their digital pieces into physical urban installations in public spaces.

The session running from 10 may to 7 July 2006.

How to participate?

The following materials should be submitted to by 3 May 2006:

  • Registration form
  • One project proposal per group of participants
  • Short introduction of participants including contact information and photo

For more information, find attached detailed guidelines and the registration form or visit:
