Berlin Refugee Youth Workshop

Berlin Refugee Youth Workshop

Last month I partnered with Pass the Crayon, an incredible NGO in Berlin that offers arts workshops to refugee kids there. We conducted a one-week pre-production workshop for about 13 kids using fun, hands-on activities to teach story structure, character development, scripting, storyboarding, and a little set design.

Partnering with Pass the Crayon in Berlin

Pass the Crayon is one of those golden NGOs whose impact is due to the ceaseless work of a couple of devoted full-time staff members and a lot of very passionate volunteers. Pass the Crayon works with volunteer artists to offer arts workshops to refugee children in Berlin, Germany. I am so thrilled to share that this August I will be partnering with them to conduct a film workshop with the children at one of their partner shelters in Berlin!
