What we do

We hold Self-Knowledge Film Workshops in child protection institutions, helping children develop self-knowledge, self-confidence and creative work. There are drama teachers and mental health professionals, actors, a slammer champion, a movement culture development specialist and a team of young filmmakers to help these kids, who have already won several awards with their films.


We work with the Northern Support Association and the Knowledge Power Group.

About Self-Knowledge Film Workshop

The Self-Knowledge Film Workshop is a joint program of two non-governmental organizations in Budapest; the Viable Association and the Northern Support Association. They provide sessions for young people living in child protection institutions, temporary home for families, and foster homes. With the help of professional actors, they make videos to draw attention to vulnerable children.


Self-Knowledge Film Workshop aims to show the experience of teamwork through filming: “Young people experience success through the project and can create value that others recognize. Most young people want to be in a movie. The opportunity we offer entices and dynamizes them. Their self-knowledge will develop, they will have goals, they will become more conscious, and they will start believing in themselves. ”
