Words laid bare – 2017 Naked Word Festival

30/05/2017

lingua franca

The 2017 Naked Word poetry and spoken word festival will take place from 8 to 11 June at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective in Observatory, Cape Town. The Naked Word festival attracts the attendance of poets and audience from all over the country.

The theme for this second annual Naked Word Festival is “I Speak of My Inherit-Age”. History has displaced many South Africans, culturally and physically. We want to place ourselves culturally, but that demands a re-shape of our understanding of ‘culture’. We are acknowledging that many stories and histories dissipated during colonisation and the new South African dispensation. We are redefining culture as generational, and we are employing live poetry, music and dialogue to do this”.

The Festival is funded by Western Cape Government, Department of the Premier. Other sponsors and partners include Bush Radio, Grounding Sessions, Theatre Arts admin Collective and The Radioactive Blog.

Young people tackle the media

03/12/2009

Media Kidocracy Konference 2009 Bush Radio in association with the Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW) project is in the final stages of planning its 10th annual Media Kidocracy Konference (MKK).

The conference will take place from the 14th – 18th of December 2009 at St. Agnes Primary School in Woodstock.

A delegate at the first conference 10 years ago

Youth between the ages of 12 and 18 will get together to explore issues that are pertinent to themselves and their peers as well as use different forms of media to develop a media campaign that will create social awareness.

Topics will include: citizenship, child labour, substance abuse, language and culture, gender-based violence and pollution.

These will be explored through various media such as dance and/or drama, online and/or print, radio, T.V. and photography.

Through these media, they can critically appraise where they are now in life and how their current behaviour will help or hinder them achieve the future they want.

Background on MKK

As part of a growing need for youth participation in the decision-making process and policy formulation around children’s broadcasting, Bush Radio initiated a conference which would tackle these issues and also feed into this debate.

The Kidocracy (Kid-democracy) name was created for the event to denote a form of society characterized by social equality and acceptance of young people with representation for and by young people.

The Media Kidocracy Konference aims to establish critical awareness and understandings amongst young people by exposing youth to information and experiences that will enable them to identify issues they feel are relevant as well as explore the role of the media in creating an understanding of the social issue.

MKK also assists participants in devising strategies for addressing the social issues by using the media as a tool to help resolve and address these issues.
