A group of young at risk at JP Heije institute in Oosterbeek worked on a magazine as a pilot for the Valmopris project. The teachers were Saskia Kettelarij and Sanne Willemsen.
With “Making the Magazine” they aimed to motivate these young people to contribute actively towards a common goal. The learners worked with photography, drawing, painting, writing and interviewing. In the first week all were researching what they like to do and what their talents are. This led to an editorial team and further division of tasks. Next the participants got creative and started to collect materials.
In the last week all material was made into one magazine with lay-out and graphic design. The final result was put together with the editorial team and printed in a limited edition so that the participants, teachers and the hosting organisation could disseminate them within their networks.
