SKAFTIEN #3 kick starts K! Art Hour, an expansion of the Keleketla After School Programme (KASP). SKAFTIEN is known as recurring community-based meal that generates and democratically awards micro-grants for creative projects - http://www.skaftien.org/. The revision of SKAFTIEN sees Keleketla and partners reflecting on the successes and shortcomings of both Joburg and Cape Town SKAFTIEN projects.

24 February

Makhwapheni (Stevenson Johannesburg’s new platform)
62 Juta Street, Braamfontein (entry through Smit Service Street)

Dialogue + Food: 2-4pm
Concert: 5-10pm

Curated by Lerato Bereng, the revision of SKAFTIEN will explore art education as the drive behind this unique fundraising model. The event will include the core elements: food, music and the community. Speakers are challenged to discuss pedagogical proposals to be implemented with the interests of the learners at Freedom Community College. A group of youth at the high school have a powerful choir that is keen on collaborations. They also have ideas for a school newsletter and to maximise the use of their school library. The history class have been doing interventions in the KASP programme to enhance their learning experiences on the South African history modules in the national curriculum.

How could we use SKAFTIEN to address head-on the challenges in our education system? SKAFTIEN speakers are asked to engage with this question - how to match ‘community’ interests with personal practices through a clear, dynamic and critical pedagogy that could introduce a horizontal learning stage for all collaborators. The SKAFTIEN audience will eat and engage with the most compelling perspectives on interventions into the school curriculum.

As usual, SKAFTIEN will provide mouth-watering food and end with music, this time in the form of a street-bash!
