Training for Journalists: With Us and Not For Us!

"Children Are Not Born with Prejudices!" - this is a Swedish project, within the framework of which the film was screened on April 29 at Grigol Robakidze University. The project aims to change the stereotypes and attitudes toward people with disabilities.

On this day, students attended the movie screening of „The Importance of Tying your own Shoes” followed by a discussion and training. The film (2011) is based on the real story of the creation of the Glady Hudik Theater with the participation of typical and disabled actors.

Discussion was followed by training for media school students about "What should we know about media coverage of people with disabilities?". Training was conducted by the "Media Voice" Executive Director Teona Tskhomelidze (director of Radio "Commersant"). The Chairwoman of the “media Voice”, associated professor Maia Toradze conducted the discussion session on solidarity journalism. The meeting with the students was attended by special guest Tatia Datashvili, who shared her experience with future journalists.

At the end of the training, the participants were awarded certificates.
