We are an independent, non-profit, community orientated education initiative. The project intends to explore African centered educational content, pedagogical practice, and methodology. It seeks to engage in practical work and to network with other spaces and initiatives on the African continent.
As part of an ongoing project exploring music education in the contemporary African context, we are running a series of open, activity driven workshops.
We are concerned for this particular session with the role of music among the youth and in the struggle for the liberation of our people. This question speaks to the issue of music as an educational mechanism in our everyday lives. The workshop aims to be participatory and family-friendly.
We will be joined by record collector and DJ GrilBlue, who will provide a musical response to the issues discussed.
