More than just a workshop

THE POWER OF STORYTELLING

 

 

I.AM. believes in the power of film&video. It's a strong way to tell stories and reach a big audience. It's a way to address social economic problems and break down boundaries. Most important, it is a way to express yourself in a creative way.

With an annual three-week summer course I.AM. supports the teenagers to broaden the horizon. We want to give them a positive experience which increases self-confidence and ambition.

We bring knowledge to the townships by gathering experts of the film, video and tv industry to support the teenagers in Langa. They learn the kids new skills and inspire them with practical & fun workshops focused on ‘learning by doing’.  

 

A growing creative industry

the POSSIBILITY TO PARTICIPATE
 

 

Being named Design Capital of the world 2014 Capetown is the place to be to pursue your creative dreams. Capetown has a fast growing creative industry and offers job opportunities, but not for those born in a township. 

Talented township teenagers from Langa are looking for a chance to follow their dreams. Growing up in extreme poverty leads to a lack of education and problems of gangsterism, drugs abuse, and unemployment. Because of the lack of knowledge and skills they are unable to participate in the growth of the industry. 

 
The film industry in Capetown is growing but the township people are not involved. To integrate in this industry they need knowledge and skills, that is why I.AM. is important.
