Children's TV progam producers from Asia, Africa and the Arab world are invited to take part in the second round of production of short program series for children that aim to strengthen cultural diversity and create a better understanding among children about various cultures and school of thoughts.
The first round of the program, which is called "I Am ... ," produced 14 short TV programs that show how children view topics such as religion, family, and pollution, according to the Asia-Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development (AIBD), one of the sponsors.
AIBD, along with the Southern African Broadcasting Association (SABU) and the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU), recently announced the 2009 project.
It will begin in 2009 with workshops on children's TV program production; three workshops will be organized in parallel in Johannesburg, Tunis and Kuala Lumpur.
With the support of two senior Executive Producers, the 40 participating producers will each produce their own programs.
