Training of regional coordinators in Ukraine (Docudays UA), Kiev, UA
Docudays UA has built up a wide network of regional partners throughout Ukraine. Through these regional partners, it supports grass-root initiatives aiming at long-term social and cultural wellbeing of networks of communities. Having an impact on the well-educated and pro-European audience in Kiev is not such a big challenge as having an impact on the audience in Ukraine’s regions. Regional screenings are very important, especially now, when Eastern Ukraine is torn apart by war, when Russia’s soft power might influence many persons who are socially vulnerable and when some of the needed but painful reforms implemented by the Ukrainian government might turn people’s interest away from democratic values. Docudays UA will therefore train their regional coordinators in programming, promotion and other activities that are important in order to have a bigger impact in Ukraine’s regions.
