Our third and final episode. A big thanks to everyone involved. We learnt so much over the past semester.

The time has come for me and Sipho to hand over the model for community radio theatre that we have been working on this semester. Today we presented our ideas to the Knight Foundation (an initiative by the Journalism department to promote community/civic journalism) in the hope that they will be interested in following through with the ideas we have been developing. Although we have produced a series of short radio dramas over the past few months, it is the research we have done and our ideas for community based audio theatre that became the most important contributor. Although we might not have been aware of this at the time, what we produced has come secondary to the ideas we have developed.

I can’t believe that this project is drawing to a close. It’s been an adventurous semester in which Sipho and I have worked, experimented and learnt together in a great participatory production with the Egazini Outreach Project. While the beginning stages were tough and finding our footing proved more difficult than we expected, I am thrilled with how things have all come together.

Time is not on our side this term! Thanks to the up-coming world cup (very exciting!) our second academic term has been cut rather short as a result there is a bit of a mad rush to get things done! What Sipho and I have decided to do in order to (hopefully) maximise output, is split certain tasks between us. Otherwise there would be some serious 7 day working weeks happening!
