We have the pleasure to announce that we have launched the application process for this year's edition of the In Between? project.
The call is open to all candidates age 18-25, including students and freelancers representing various areas of interest that may include history, cultural anthropology, sociology and audiovisual arts, among others. Participants will be given a unique opportunity to gain theoretical and practical experience in documenting oral stories in order to explore 20th-century history by speaking with those who lived it.
After 4-day workshops participants will have learned the theoretical basics of interview methodology, digital video-camera operation, photography, digitalisation of visual materials, archiving and historical context. Then, they will be divided into groups of six to travel to border towns and other localities for seven days. During their stay they will conduct and document interviews with local inhabitants. Recollections, sound and video recordings, photographs, letters as well as scanned documents and other items reflecting the daily life of the communities will constitute a basis for building accounts of their travel that will be shared with historical institutions and local archives, including the National Digital Archive in Poland and the Virtual Shtetl (Museum of the History of Polish Jews)

Ksenia Wilaszek recalls her experience from the 1st edition of the "In Between?" project
When I decided to take part in the “In Between?” project I hadn’t expected to see so many new things and experience such wonderful moments. After all, I have been living in Lubusz Land – the area which we have visited – for six years by now. But to understand the region’s phenomenon properly, one needs to explore its diverse history.
You can now watch on-line the videos from the 2016 editions. The short movies were created by the In Between? participants in co-operation with National Audiovisual Institute.
We have the pleasure to announce that the "In Between?" Conference will take place in Warsaw, Poland between 2 and 3 December 2016.
The program includes: presentations of the study visits, a speed geeking session, screening of the “The Border” documentary, lecture and discussion panels. All events are held in English.
Admission is free. The conference will take place at the National Audiovisual Institute (ul. Wałbrzyska 3/5, Warsaw).
The conference (seminar) funded by the German Federal Government Commisioner for Culture and the Media.
We look forward to welcoming you here!
