We are Doc Next Network! We are curators, researchers, producers, teachers, working within the field of creative media and young people. Our network is a unique European movement. We are mainly active in the UK, Spain, Poland and the Netherlands and Turkey, but are also connected to other parts of Europe and its neighbors. We organize media-workshops for media-talent and storytellers. In doing so, we are collecting videos, stories, photos and other media art productions of all sorts of young people.
Our first goal is to strive for a more inclusive public debate and imagery, in and of Europe. We try to do this by providing access to media for young people who are likely to be excluded from mainstream public discourse. We want to make room for a new generation of young media-makers who show what Europe is really about.
Also, we want to bring these stories to you: at film festivals, online and mainstream broadcasters and media platforms – but also at seminars and conferences where other decisions makers of all ages are present.
Our network consists of strategic partnerships with European independent cultural organisations:
-Association of Creative Initiatives “ę” (Warsaw, PL)
-British Film Institute (London, UK)
-IDFA (Amsterdam, NL)
-Metropolis TV (Amsterdam, NL)
-Mode Istanbul (Istanbul, TR)
-ZEMOS98 (Seville, ES)
