Welcome to Speechless in Europe!

We believe that there are other ways of talking politics than just using words.
Between October 2015 and March 2016, we want to see, hear, and watch your stories and get to know what you have to say about Europe. Tell us your story in video, graffiti, theater, photo stories – you choose the format!

Please remember: your videos should be no longer than 2 Minutes maximum and your pictures not bigger than 1000x yy pixels.

How can I participate?

Go to a Storytelling Workshop

Starting in October 2015, multiplier workshops will take place in Paris, Rome, Budapest and Berlin. In the workshops, young people from France, Hungary, Italy and Germany are invited to develop and share a story on Europe. They will create their story in groups, and subsequently upload and present it here on Ypart.

How can I post a video proposal?

Once you have created a user account on this platform, you can create proposals. Here, you can write something about your video and embed it into the proposal. This means, you have to upload the video to YouTube or Vimeo, and then use the following markdown command to embed the video here (leaving out the spaces in between): ! [youtube] (URL) or: ! [vimeo] (URL) So for instance, if you want to use a Video from YouTube, the code which you need to type in goes like this (still, without any space between the characters):

! [youtube] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbuaUYMwOP8)

Re-tell another story

After uploading, the stories from the participants will be discussed and voted upon. Each participant is invited to vote for the best contribution in one of our 5 categories. Then, the local teams will choose a story from another country to “re-tell” – in their own style.

Win a trip to the Storytelling Festival in Rome

At the end of the project, 10 finalists of each country will be hosted in Rome, where the Storytelling Festival will take place. The Participation to the Festival will be free and open to any young people interested over the age of 18. The festival takes place in May 2016.
