Break The Couch team is opening now the application procedure for enthusiastic participants for the Mediagraphy+ phase2, Youth Exchange happening in Iasi, Romania between 16-23 February 2016 organised by Synergy Romania.

Read what Maria, participant of phase1 shared after her experience in phase1: “Mediagraphy+ is a Youth Exchange project designed to enhance your self-branding skills. The vision of Mediagraphy+ is the power of choice, the authenticity and the expression of the inner self, aspects unique for each person.
The first part of the project, focused on social media, is already completed and provided the participants with diverse skills such as communication and creativity tips, IT skills (use of softwares like Illustrator, Indesign, etc) and useful ideas of self-promotion.
We got to design our own logo and moto, develop our speech skills, experiment with new photography techniques and much more.
We formed a strong, bonded group and saw the development in each of us through these 9 beautiful days in Iasi, Romania.
Don’t wait more. Apply for the second and third parts 🙂
