Project MUSED is an online platform that helps in finding the right person(s) to work on Projects focused on 'Digital Storytelling'. Project MU.S.E.D. stands for Multimedia Supporting the Economy by Diversity.

 

 

Due to the recent economic crisis, unemployment is on the rise. Opportunities seem to be scarce and unreachable for young people. One way of tackling unemployment is by creating new innovative businesses that focus outwards, instead of looking at a saturated market for positions. But working on independent projects or new ventures requires collaboration between people with different specialisations. There is a need for a platform that brings together young professionals with diverse backgrounds, knowledge, skills and abilities.

 

Project MU.S.E.D. is a digital platform where youths with diverse backgrounds can meet online and create 'Multidisciplinary Project Teams' for projects related to Digital Storytelling. The project aims to enable synergies between people from different backgrounds or different communities who can work together on simple or complex projects to earn work experience, create new ventures and business collaborations, or gain freelancing opportunities.

 

Initially, the projects will be focused on digital storytelling: ebooks, webcomics, digital gaming, videos, infographics, apps, websites. But in the future, the platform can also be easily extended to include environmental, non-profit/volunteering, engineering and any other kind of projects requiring team work.

 

Digital Storytelling Projects can be (but not limited to):

  • Digital Stories (ebooks, video, other formats)
  • Digital Games
  • Marketing/Advertising/Public Relations
  • Web/Digital Comics
  • Education by Digital Storytelling
  • Journalism

 

User Journey:

The Team

 

Nikos Malekos: Team Coordinator, with a Communication and Marketing/PR background, responsible for the Business development and Marketing side of the project.

Desislava Mincheva: Animator/Graphic Designer, responsible for the Visual/Graphics part of the Platform and Marketing activities.

Michael Theodorides: Software Engineer and developer, responsible for the design, implementation, and maintenance of the platform.

 

 

Community Support

 

Project Mu.S.E.D. is all about the community, building a new economy and supporting people through the whole process. Therefore we need people that understand Digital Storytelling in different formats and can carry out workshops and help with templates to guide teams on various types of projects:

 

  • e-Books
  • Digital Games
  • Creative Writing
  • Writing for Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing
  • Comics (Web-Digital)
  • Video/Audio projects
  • Educational material (story based)

 

We will also need venues for workshops & working spaces as well as advice on business and legal issues.

 

Budget: $29962
