Digital Lives - War in Games, part 2
My family in history is organised by the Norwegian Historical Society (HIFO) with support from the Fritt Ord Foundation and Aschehoug Publishing House. It is open to pupils in lower and upper secondary school. This competition revolves around everyday people, making them the main characters. Pupils are urged to investigate topics such as democracy, war and conflict, changing living conditions, migration and working life in the light of their own family history.
In collaboration with a number of Norwegian universities and university colleges, the Fritt Ord Foundation calls for applications for grants for students who are working on master's theses and documentary films in fields such as human rights, journalism, freedom of expression and democracy building. See below for a list of the current offerings. The call for applications per se is located on the websites of the respective institutions, and applications should be sent directly to the relevant faculties.
The Free Word Centre opened in September 2009, and is located on Farringdon Road, London, in what used to be the Guardian Newsroom Building. In addition to offices for six cooperating organisations in the field of freedom of expression and literary debate (including Article 19 and English PEN) the building is used for events, seminars and meetings.
The Fritt Ord Foundation Competition for upper secondary school is an annual competition that invites pupils to submit entries about freedom of expression and democracy. A special topic is highlighted each year, and participants' entries can be submitted either in the form of a text or a media production. The Fritt Ord Foundation organises seminars for teachers and offers school visits and supervision for participants.
