The tools will be created in a way to be attractive to various target groups, among which will be:
The awareness tools implementers: Palestinian artist Amer Shomali and Tamer Institute for Community Education, based in Ramallah are currently in the process of implementing the tools. The proposals were based on the researches results and contents. Moreover, the choice of the tools was drawn from the feedback of seven focus groups [link to the report] and the Palestine Heritage Seminar [link]. Held in different places through Palestine, the focus groups aimed at catalysing the social cohesion between the participants and be an opportunity for networking. The workshops were lead by Bisan Mitri, Grip Senior Consultant, who underlined the crucial nature of the variety of the gathered people: “It is very important that today we have in one room people of various ages, genders and that they are coming from different towns and cities.”
The participants were also asked to point to the topics that sounded the most interesting to them and that would possibly be the most engaging to the broader audience in Palestine. The groups also defined perspectives from which they would like to learn about these topics. The angels mentioned were: economics, cultural perspective, politics, tourism, as well as social dimension and gender.
Among the possible creative educational tools were identified short and long video productions, printed visual materials (e.g. posters or brochures), field visits, workshops, web portal, smartphone application, books, virtual reality presentations, folklore gatherings and festivals.
Based on these recommendations, six forms of information aides have been proposed by the two awarded Palestinian providers (song books, murals, book exhibition, cards, infographics, and short films).
The implementers have been asked to take in consideration the specificities of the country and in particular the way of tools dissemination. The tools will be finalised by July 2019.
