Ethiopian Digital Stories Workshops

Digital Stories, Ethiopia

Our latest film is now on-line. It is a collection of short films exploring the lives and experiences of individuals in Addis Ababa created at our Digital Stories Training Workshop Addis Ababa, Ethiopia last year.

This Digital Stories film project was made as part of our International Development programme, working with The Ethiopian Gemini Trust and GEM TV in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and skills sharing with the staff there. Set up in 1987 to save and support twins born to needy families in Addis Ababa, Gemini directly helps over 2,000 families in the most deprived parts of Addis Ababa, working with over 11,000 people.

The Ethiopian Gemini Trust runs a ground-breaking youth programme; on a daily basis over 300 young people come to Gemini to take part in community arts activities, dance, music, drama, film making.
