Walking Towards Employability
The new European program Walking Towards Employability was created with the aim of finding sustainable and flexible models for young entrepreneurship in the context of cultural heritage. These models aim to be applied in cases of socio-economic exclusion especially in vulnerable populations.
ERASMUS+ 2020 - 2022
Karpos in this new European program responds to its needs by educating young people in the use of audiovisual media in order to highlight hidden aspects of their culture and giving them an innovative tool that will help them in their professional life.
Our partners are experienced organisations in France - D'Antilles & D'Ailleurs and in Italy - Tamat and AITR - who develop and promote the cultural heritage of each place through their local communities and our Belgian partners -Groupe One - are experts in mentoring young entrepreneurs in this field.
The Walking Tour Course
On April 22, 2021, the first audiovisual training of the participants of the program was successfully carried out by Karpos. Karpos undertook the second module of the Walking Tours, which concerns the use of audiovisual media in order to highlight the distinctive features of a place, a community, a neighborhood. The trainees practiced observing narrative techniques through images, in order to be able to apply them themselves to present "hidden" cultural routes in their area.
In more detail, emphasis was placed on the different ways in which images are interpreted, and how one with little knowledge of audiovisuals can use them. In addition, the importance of finding the right details in each space was analyzed, as that is what makes it special. The participants of the program were finally invited to apply the techniques taught in the laboratory through exercises.

In September 2021 o Karpos participated in the 2nd training of the European Walking Towards Employability Program, which was implemented in Perugia, Italy. The training was based on topics related to responsible and sustainable tourism, audiovisual training, marketing and entrepreneurship. Our organization carried out one of the workshops. The purpose of the workshop was to teach youth workers how to create amateur videos in order to promote the hidden cultural heritage and identity of a neighborhood. We did an introduction to basic concepts of photography and sound and practical exercises on shooting and editing with a mobile device.
