About project

The idea of the New Creative Life of Material Project (NCLoM) is the cross-sector cooperation of the Creative and artistic sector with the Audio-visual sector with an emphasis on the use of recycled and waste materials in creative artistic work with the subsequent creation of proven procedures and processing methodologies and the innovative combination of such materials into the final design of products at the level of prototypes.

The creation process will be documented through the produced video content transformed into digital educational materials that will be created as part of the project. Subsequently, they will be distributed online to the community of artists, creatives, the participating public, and entities from the creative industry. The appropriateness of the chosen scope, content and format of video educational and motivational materials will be verified through innovative data analysis tools. The analysis results will be used to optimize the created digital educational materials to ensure the best understanding and accessibility for the mentioned community.

The implementation is planned through 5 activities:

  1. Project management (2 outputs: Guidelines, Progress report),
  2. Artistic and material design of creative products and prototyping (2 outputs: Call for artists and creators, Prototypes),
  3. Educational videos / tutorials – making story (4 outputs: Teasers, Shorts videos, Tutorials, Movies),
  4. Data collection, analysis, and social engagement (3 outputs: Communication Tools and Channels Launch, NCLoM Analytical Tool, Written Interpretive Evaluation),
  5. Dissemination (4 outputs: Dissemination/Communication Plan, Digital Content, Educational videos and multimedia tools, Story of NCLoM).

Number of direct recipients of services from the project is 135, number of indirect recipients by a qualified estimate is 126 thousand.
