The 14th Media Kidocracy kicks off #MKK2014

06/10/2014

mkk2014 copy

This year the 14th Media Kidocracy (kid+democracy) Konfrence which runs from th 6th to the 10th October 2014, is taking place in a historic year for media in South Africa. Bush Radio is celebrating 21 years since its first illegal broadcast, and 19 years of legal broadcasting. The National Community Radio Forum (NCRF) is also celebrating 21 years of existence, Bush Radio played a pivotal role in the establishment of the NCRF.

As South Africans, we are celebrating 20 years of democracy, as a country we are slowly emerging from a violent apartheid past to a nation celebrating its freedom.

The theme for MKK2014 is “Celebrating 20 years of democracy: learning from the past and celebrating the future.”

One of the foundations of this democracy we have built is freedom of expression.

This right allows everyone, including youth, to express themselves, whether this is verbally, artistically, scientifically or in any other way. However, this right does not come without responsibilities and we need to look at how we use our hard fought for freedom.

Freedom of expression is entrenched in the Media Kidocracy Konfrence as it allows participants to express the issues they raise through their media productions.

Bush Radio would like to thank the support of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FESmediaAfrica), the Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA), the Children’s Movement, and Whale Coast FM.

* Several of Bush Radio’s programmes will be broadcasting live from the event, these are: The Breakfast Rush (6-9am), The Morning Cruise (9am – 12pm), Sakhisizwe (12 – 2pm) and Everyday People (4 – 7pm).

** MKK2014 takes places at Wortelgat situated on the blanks of the Kleinriver estuary so besides the intensive media programme and discussion sessions participants will also enjoy the picturesque fynbos as well as archery, abseiling, and hiking.

These are just a few examples of what’s to come.

Dancers (and Radio people) don’t cry

10/06/2011

Afrika Ablaze and Bush Radio 89.5 FM brings you the Re-run of Dancers Don’t Cry – Bigger and Better, produced and directed by Glenda Jones.

Dancers Don’t Cry premiered at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in March 2011, with matinees and evening
shows. All four shows played to packed houses, standing ovations and rave reviews. Comments ranged from “A truly brilliant show” to “The best dance/drama I’ve ever seen” to “Brilliant dancing, outstanding acting and a beautiful story.”

Requests for a re-run of this dynamic production poured in, and, it was recently announced that a re-run of Dancers Don’t Cry is
heading for the CTICC on the 2nd July 2011.

A squad of 60+ exceptionally talented dancers will be performing in the magnificent auditorium at the prestigious venue of the CTICC.

Dance pieces include Krumping, Hip-Hop, Ballet Funk, Contemporary and Cabaret. Every dance piece has been hailed as a masterpiece and a must see!

The story is about the journey of 3 young dancers who find themselves trapped in a volatile world of dance politics.

Nationally renowned producer, director and choreographer; Glenda Jones, is ecstatic about the re-run. “It is a dream come true for
the multi-talented cast of Dancers Don’t Cry and a wonderful opportunity to present a show that has captured the hearts and minds of those who got to see it. Don’t miss this run!”
