Center for Defending Freedom of Journalists launched a new edition of its Freedom Messengers network, supported by the King Abdullah ii Fund for Development, targeting young people who believe in human rights and freedom of expression.
Creative youth who possess the skills and talents that would enable them to spread the values of freedom amongst their community in Irbid and Salt were all invited to take part in the new project.
The program extends over 6 months, and includes a 3 days training workshop targeting talented youth in human rights issues, followed by creative productions such as short films, plays, rap and alternative songs.
A session will be held to discuss the role of creativity in change, followed by auditions to choose talents to take part in the workshop.
This new version is considered an extension to the Freedom Messengers network that was launched in 2004, aiming at creating a network of young people whom professions allow the distribution of ideas and values of democracy that they believe in, including media staff, caricaturists, producers, bloggers, musicians, bands and others who carry a creative and artistic message that portrays the fundamentals of freedom.
