RHAP students took part in a one month transmedia workshop lead by musicians and filmmakers, Katy & Joel Mejia, where they filmed themselves making art using go pro cameras that were shared with their “video Pals” in Managua, Nicaragua from the arts organization, Atelier Favela. The themes covered in the workshops and after school activities included cultural identity, media literacy, environmental conservation, bi-lingual communication, creative expression, community building as well as understanding what it means to be a global citizen.
Atelier Favela in Nicaragua is a humanitarian organisation that supports the poverty-stricken children of Ticuantepe Nicaragua. Through lessons in Arts, Music, Dance, Theatre, Circus and Capoeira at our cultural centre we hope to stimulate personal development in our students. In this way these children can grow up to become independent adults with a future in the arts or whatever their passion may be.
RHAP shared their videos and art with participants from Nicaragua.
