BAT CREATIVE ARTS WORKSHOP (article first published : 2004-06-28)

The Bat Centre and two national ministries, the Department of Arts and Culture and the National Department of Education, will host a weeklong winter holidays workshop for young people of Durban and surrounding areas between the ages of 14 years to 25 years. The workshop will take place from July 5 to 9 from 09h00 to 15h00.

The aim of this project is designed for the youth and learners to work in teams or as individuals writing essays, poetry, craft and visual art, about a Divine Woman in their communities.

The project will culminate in a Divine Woman Competition through the named art and culture disciplines with prizes up to R50,000 to be won. This project aims to promote social cohesion through the Arts and Culture in both in and out of school learners, artists and educators.

“The Divine Woman Project arises from the need that youth and the children need visible role models people to inspire and stimulate them,” say the organisers. “Young people need to see women in this country whose achievement could be highlighted. Our youth need to see women should be individuals who one way or the other have managed to contribute something that add value in their communities. These women are in their communities, schools, and places of worship and in our families.

“The young people attending the workshop will learn to recognise and be inspired by the contribution women make to our society. To address moral regeneration by building self-esteem and provide a role model of their choice to them as the youth. While developing skills of researching, sharing and team spirit, they will learn to appreciate the value of art through participation in any form of creative expression, appropriate to their culture in order to celebrate women as achievers.”
