XenoCLIPse is an action-based research project for empowerment through racial tolerance and media education. eCLIPse, the consortium’s successful first collaboration, identified the need to target ethnic minorities and go beyond the institutional context of universities. Involvement of ethno-cultural minorities means media exposure as both objects and subjects.
The new project envisages empowerment through increased access for immigrants and minority populations to new technologies, especially digital video and its distribution on the net. People who have difficulties accessing new media and other technologies will be able to distribute their own information in an easy way and pass on this knowledge and experience to their peers.
