Story Maker training Erbil

We kicked off of a special project today that runs across various countries in the Middle East: The Wireless Reporting Application project, Story Maker.
The aim of Story Maker is to increase cooperation between civic reporters from the social media generation and the world of the traditional media. Story Maker is an application on a mobile phone, with this application people can make (news) stories and upload and spread them using a safe platform.

The participants come from all over Iraq and form a mixed group with activists, civil journalists and journalists from traditional media. They gathered today in Erbil for the opening of this 5 day training.

The idea for the Story Maker project came from Free Press Unlimited, also involved are Rising Voices and Hivos.
The trainers are IMCK lead trainer Khaled Sulaiman and co-trainers Munaf and Amar.
