Young Writers’ Room If a young person seeks to articulate himself creatively by writing, a low-threshold infrastructure cannot be found. Who likes to dance, who likes to make music, who likes to act can express his passion and talent together with other like-minded people. On the other hand, those who feel called to writing and express themselves artistically with words remain on their own without support or group involvement. The DAI is now countering this socio-cultural deficit. In October, the new project Writers’ Room Labs started writing serial scripts with selected young people. The revolutionary US method of the Writers’ Room offers young people a platform where they can live out their talent with like-minded people. Positive experiences with the thematic focus on creative writing enable our Kulturhaus to continue on the chosen path, as the different formats are all very successful. Since the 1990s, the fire of the poetry slam has been ignited again and again by poets and listeners in regularly sold out halls, the project “HD-Ink – Ideas on Paper” for children with a migration background has been continuously expanded and, last but not least, findings from the Germany-wide unique project “Screenwriting of Series in the Writers’ Room for Talented Adults of All Ages” have been transferred to the new offer for young people. In concrete terms, the financial support of the Baden-Württemberg Foundation enables the DAI to offer monthly workshops for 25 young people over a period of two years, who work in five Writers’ Room Labs on different scripts for youth series. The young people are taught and accompanied between the workshops by a tutor who has experience with script writing, the Writers’ Room method and film production. According to the Writers Room concept, a team of scriptwriters creates sophisticated and entertaining new series and films, which are characterized by a high degree of realism and a high quality of the narrative material, especially because of the collective work and the bundling of individual strengths. In the development of actions and individual figures, each member of the writing group (Writers’ Room) is asked to have his or her own individuality and personal cultural experience. An immigration background becomes an obviously enriching advantage factor for good stories. The plan to make the scripts actorly or cinematically real inspires the motivation and creativity of the young people. This idea is quite realistic if you know that private or public broadcasters are desperately looking for good scripts, especially in the area of series for teenagers and young adults, and that the award-winning British success series “Skins” was written by authors at an average age of 21.
