Interns Siviwe Makeleni and Natasha Siqaza were selected by Bush Radio to participate in the Photo and Arts Journalism workshops run by the training and development initiative of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival.
We asked Natasha and Siviwe about their experience.
Natasha said; “The course was a great learning opportunity that sparked great conversations and debates around the arts. We learned a lot about writing and how to approach topics not only in the arts but journalism as a whole.”
“The CTIJF photojournalism workshop was interesting and informative, it taught me how to take pictures which one can write a story about. I learnt the pre & post production of pictures and how to set your camera for low light and taking pictures for events.” added Siviwe
