What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
The innovative program was effective and all predicted results of the task were achieved. Young professionals deepened their knowledge. Combining theory and practice in the course program allowed them to learn about professional working methods in creating radio plays broadcast in Polskie Radio. As part of the task, we organized a seminar about disseminating knowledge and raising awareness of the potential of the needs and specificity of radio directing and the production of radio plays. Young adepts of radio direction were presented to the creative industry sector representatives that are specialized in realizing audiobooks, radio plays, computer games or ebooks and audio series on online platforms. Thanks to the implementation of all components of the planned task (detailed course program, selection of the lecturers, promotion of the course and its workshops, meetings with Masters, practical classes, recordings of broadcasts and radio plays and their presentation) all assumed results and goals were achieved. All of the participants successfully completed the training and realized radio plays. The joint work of specialized artistic supervisors with participants of the course allowed the effective development of practical skills, knowledge and experience. During the course, participants have created their own radio plays, which are broadcasted at the Teatr Polskiego Radia, as well as posted on the websites of Polskie Radio, National Film Archive – Audiovisual Institute (www.ninateka.pl) and Wajda School (www.wajdaschool.pl). We managed to educate qualified creators of radio plays and actively introduce them to the labor market. Many of the educational and artistic events were open and free, enabling people with disabilities to participate.
