REC

3_Theme

GOAL

Only in its second year, REC has already set itself high targets with ambitious outcomes. Taking its name and meaning from the iconic camcorder symbol, REC constantly records all MEDS activities from workshop development to social and cultural exchanges. Led by Tutors with a diverse range of interests and educational backgrounds, REC participants are given the opportunity to follow various lines of work during the two weeks including reporting, editing, photography, video and graphical layout design.

LOCATION

Wherever MEDS is happening.

PROJECT

During the two weeks a collection of newspaper issues are published, interspersed with mini workshops where participants can try their hand at new and interesting activities. Every second day a newspaper issue is published internally throughout the workshop, designed, written and laid out by REC participants, which include updates on workshop developments and a compilation of fun and interactive articles to entertain and inform. For this process to work effectively the REC participants integrate themselves in various task and workshops, interviewing, reporting and compiling information in written and visual media formats.


As well as this already large undertaking, REC has partnered with the Editors of the newly formed DESYN Magazine. This interaction allows participants to work alongside a fledgling publication during the workshop and influence the layout, design and content for the upcoming printed issue.

This influence from participants is, and always will be, the focus of REC. A vibrant group of young and upcoming individuals are guiding the direction and style of the publications, and along with their talents the REC workshop and DESYN Magazine will continue to grow into new strengths.The influence from participants is, and always will be, the focus of REC.
