CODE Project current development and perspectives for year 2021

 The current 3D MAX and Maya courses implemented by the lead partner HRDA are gaining a lot of followers due to their 3D gaming engine instruments for creation of animated gaming heroes and virtual environment. The first Adobe Photoshop course for beginners have started at the beginning of the year and attracted the interest of a lot of young people from North Central region in Bulgaria.

Due to the complicated epidemiological situation, most of the courses during year 2021 will be held online. For this purpose, the experts from the organizations are uploading the training lectures on Moodle platform, the training sessions are conducted through Zoom platform. However, we consider distance learning to be a success story, allowing all students to attend the maximum amount of classes, youngsters from countryside have the opportunity to participate in classes, as well as watch the recording at a convenient time.

At the end of year 2020 CODE project won the competition "Best in working with young people in 2020", which was organized by the Ministry of Education and Science of Latvia in cooperation with the Agency of International Youth programs, the Association of Latvian Municipalities and Association of the Latvian Youth Council and received the award "Bravest Project".

Within the framework of CODE course, young people not only learned the theory, they have created their own design shirts, bags, towels. Trainees visited companies to get an idea where and how they could apply the acquired knowledge in practice. Young people had the chance to improve themselves for successful participation in the creative industries labor market.

In September began the joint work of artists from Ruse and Creative Center Ruse. Young people with creative ideas and activities in the field of creative industries have united their ideas and created joint projects. After an experiment of several members of the team, the fairy tale “Dr. Ow-It-Hurts”by Korney Chukovski was recreated from old slides with the help of modern technologies

In this way, heritage is preserved and children are given the opportunity to gain an idea of ​​how their parents touched the world of fairy tales. The Creative Center continues to look for like-minded people. If you have interests in the field of creative industries, welcome to the group:

In case the health situation is improved HRDA envisages to open the high-tech equipped Creative Center Ruse for the trainees and stakeholders. This will improve the quality of the training process and will provide opportunities for the implementation of joint creative projects.

Because of the great number of applicants that were not included in the first CODE training courses, some of the partners are going to organize extra courses, if possible. In addition, due to the COVID-1,9 some of the scheduled activities were delayed and transformed into online alternatives. This imposes an extension of the project duration and a budget modification to be made in the current year.

The CODE project benefits from a € 2,300,000 grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and the Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment. The aim of the CODE project is to provide quality employment opportunities for vulnerable young people at risk of poverty.
