Workshop I: Arrival city johannesburg
Johannesburg, november 18th – 24th, 2018
For the first time in history, more people live in cities than in the countryside. Thousands of people migrate to metropolises longing for a better future, seeking a space where they can build their lives.
Being one of the few African metropolises, Johannesburg is one of those arrival cities. The so-called City of Gold attracts people from all over the continent, allowing new forms of life and coexistence. For some, the streets of Joburg may be paved with gold. For others, it's merely a city of barriers and lack of perspectives.
Workshop II: Living and working in a globalized city – Berlin 4.0
Berlin, May 18th – 25th, 2019
By reference to Berlin, the participants will examine the effects of digital capitalism on social coexistence and draw parallels to African metropolises. By means of a skill training in film technique and editing, they will be instructed to present their results in short videos.
Workshop III: The dissolution of the urban space –
longing for Cape Town
Cape town, november 18th – 23rd, 2019
Cities worldwide compete for the attraction of investors, tourists and media attention by establishing city brands. On the African continent, Cape Town is unquestionably the city that most successfully follows this path. The Cape is a destination of longing for affluent cosmopolitans, sun worshiping tourists and digital nomads from all over the world. Economically, this is a stroke of luck. But at the same time, there are only few places where the selectivity of globalization is as strong as here. On a skills level, we will train various radio, podcasting formats and radio-specific writing techniques.
