Young people taking charge of media (MKK 2012)

20/12/2012

7 MKKAfter intense planning and a busy week the 12th Annual Media Kidocracy Konfrence (MKK2012) came to an end on Friday, the 14th of December 2012.

About 80 youth delegates (aged 12 – 21) drawn from all over the country, SADC and as far away as Northern Ireland attended MKK.

Below are the “products” which showcase how the young people interpreted the various themes outlined for this year. For a large percentage of the delegates this was the first time they had been directly involved in the production of media. A strong element of all the MKK conferences have been linking a practical implementation of ideas generated in the various intensive panel discussions and workshop groups.

This year’s theme was Youth Participation in Democracy, with sub-themes being:

  • Youth Rights and Civic Participation – Human Rights
  • Economic Freedom – Labour
  • My Body, My Choice – Health
  • Express Yourself – Arts and Culture
  • Who am I – Gender
  • My Future World – Environment

Bush Radio would like to thank our partners; the Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA) and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung – Media (FES Media) for their support as well as The British Council, Media24, Mara Media, CVET, GCIS, Public Acheivement, Samantha Reinders, MAK1 and Netdynamix.

A tale of two cities

28/02/2012

The state of South Africa cities currently sits on a crossroad of possible futures, articulated in urban design, architecture, design, the arts and social studies. The dichotomies of formal and informal structures circulate and merge with boundaries that extend beyond the physical borders of supposedly defined urban spaces.

In a night of discussion and exhibition dsgnTête-à-Tête, the flagship discussion platform of MoDILA and broadcast in partnership with Bush Radio 89.5FM every Thursday at 2:30 pm, hosts A Tale of [2+1] Cities, where renowned international experts in the fields of architecture and urban studies will debate with the public on their perspectives of local and global future cities.

All designers and creatives are welcome!

The discussion will be followed by an electronic exhibit of works from the Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation, Columbia University, New York entitled Design intelligence Africa and from the University of Cape Town Architecture @ UCT – issues and themes at the Cape Institute for Architecture.

The concept note will be provided subject to RSVP.

Let’s dih-zahyn tet-uh-tet

23/02/2012

For the past 4 weeks, Modila* and Bush Radio 89.5fm successfully piloted a show on 89.5FM  which dealt with the concept of design.

Today we invite you to tune into 89.5FM or online (from your mobile or PC) for dsgnTête-à-Tête (pronounced dih-zahyn  tet-uh-tet) at 2:30pm.

The show continues to create a platform for debate and discussion around design with a special emphasis on how we define the concept of design, and how do we use it to raise social issues.

In today’s show we look at “Supporting Designers” – the current recession has had an umistakeable impact on the South African economy, with many businesses struggling to remain open.

In this context, will we be celebrating the 2014 Design Capital with destitute designers and local buyers? Has government supported designers enough during the financial crisis, or is it left to designers, as creative and intelligent thinkers, to create their own self-funded businesses?

*MoDILA, ‘Africa’s cradle for design and leadership excellence’.

dsgnTête-à-Tête is the flagship discussion platform of MODILA and Bush Radio.

Change by design – check out dsgnM@ttrs on 89.5FM

02/02/2012

Modila* and Bush Radio 89.5FM have launched a programme which creates a platform for debate and discussion around design called dsgnM@ttrs.

With Cape Town being named as the 2014 Design Capital, focus is falling on the design field, where South Africa is arguably behind in comparison to the international design market.

One of the problems that plague the industry is a general misconception and misuse on the concept of ‘design’, and a general lack of understanding within the South African business environment on the potential of design.

We need to start talking about design, and what it can do. How would you define the concept of ‘design’, and how do we use design to raise social issues?

Tune in every Thursday at 2:30pm for dsgnM@ttrs on 89.5fm or online via www.bushradio.co.za

*MoDILA, ‘Africa’s cradle for design and leadership excellence’. dsgnM@ttrs is the flagship discussion platform of MODILA and Bush Radio.”

Is your weather normal?

This year marks the 17th meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP17), which takes place annually, highlighting the significance of “climate change”. Bush Radio supported by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung is hosting a series of consultative meetings with civil society organisations to discuss their plans for COP17 and how Bush Radio could assist with publicising and broadcasting the planned events and activities.

A drama demonstrating the effects of climate change

On Monday, 14th November 2011, Bush Radio, in partnership with Sub-Council 9 in Khayelitsha and Radio Zibonele, hosted a public meeting on COP17, at the Thusong Multi-purpose Centre, to discuss the issues of climate change and its impact on communities.

Guest speakers included Sheryl Ozinsky from the City of Cape Town’s Climate Smart, who informed the audience about various information regarding “Climate Change” and Misha Teasdale from Greenpop, who showed the individuals how they should plant trees.

The audience also gave input on the features Bush Radio is producing as part of its training course for journalists for COP17

The event included lots of fun and laughter and ended with the guests receiving lunch and a tree as a gift to take home for them to plant in their own communities.
