Filming Workshop in Kibera

25 Aug

At the end of July 17 artists attended a 4 day workshop about the One Minute Africa Awards. The main meeting hall of Center for Transforming Missions in Kibera was transformed into an energetically-charged space of sound, dance, and drama as the artists were taught by Jimmy Ogonga and Patrick Mukabi from a local arts organization called the GoDown Arts Center. Each artist wrote out their own script and then the proper filming and editing equipment was provided so that at the en of the workshop each artist had been educated in the full filming process! The artists who attended (from Kawangware, Dandora, Mathare, and Kibera) will be receiving certificates and dvds of their finished films once all is complete. In September we will eagerly wait to judging results as well as celebrate with the artists at the GoDown Arts Center by having a showing of all of the films representing the Nairobi area!
