Coming Together for Creative Experiences
This programme is about bringing diverse communities together to promote understanding and recognition of ethnic communities.
Each month during 2020, one country and culture will be showcased in three different formats: hands-on workshop, film & discussion, and radio show.
We are looking for more ethnic artists or crafters who would like to collaborate with us. Please be in touch if this programme interests you for sharing about your culture and talent.
Shama will partner with eight different ethnic artists and crafters who will present their art/craft and then teach others how to do this art/craft with the participants creating their own product. The artist/crafter will share a story that is about their culture, their life, the artwork, and why the art is important to them.
Film & Discussion
A short film related to the country or culture of the month will be shown followed by discussion with the presenter and time for Q&A. It’s a great way to learn about a country/culture in a way that someone might not get through the usual channels.
We will interview members of the cultural community of the month to get different aspects and stories of that country/culture. The show will be broadcast on FreeFm 89.0 weekly on Wednesdays at 7pm, Thursdays at 7am and Fridays at 9:30pm
When: One workshop and one film event will be held per month. Sign up for our newsletter or Facebook page to get alerted of upcoming events.
