Social Enterprise Academy Workshops

Since March 2018, we’ve been attending a series of workshops on Non Profit Sustainability, which ended in April 2019. The Social Enterprise Academy delivered a learning programme with group sessions and individual coaching that will enable nonprofits to build resilience, capacity and sustainability of the organisation, enabling them continue to make social impact into the long term. Special thanks to Khwezi Fudu, Social Enterprise Academy South Africa, and Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa for the opportunity and lessons learned!

Weekend Workshop: Creative Writing for Change

From April 13-14, 2019 The Hub hosted poet/rapper/activist Sadon for a weekend workshop on creative writing and song writing. He led participants on writing exercises with the theme ‘Future of Lesotho’, and we’re excited about the monumental pieces written during this workshop!

Special thanks to Sadon for sharing his time and skills with us, and to Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa and Glasswaters Foundation for partnering with us on this project.

MiLLi* at The Hub

From March 18-31, 2019, The Hub hosted Namibia’s leading Media and Information Literacy Learning Initiative – MiLLi* – for Summer School. 8 participants were certified as MiLLi* facilitators, and led their first 3-day Youth Project workshop teaching Power to Empower, giving participants the chance to gain a deeper understanding and knowledge about the features and dynamics of social media:

  • Access and use various types of social media
  • Understand the role of media in society and critically assess it
  • Be aware of ethical standards of media output, research, and its presentation
  • Educate & Empower all members of society when it comes to information and knowledge
  • Be able to express ones opinion, share content, and spread news

The Hub now has two certified facilitators, with Sbi and Thabo taking part in the training. Ts’episo and Liteboho documented the workshop series with video, releasing a 30 second recap each day on social media. See the videos below:

Weekend Workshop: Event Video

From March 9 – 10, 2019 Pheello Pj Makosholo was back at The Hub for a weekend workshop, this time teaching how to capture video of live events.

We used Tiny Gallery Concert on March 10 as part of the workshop, with participants capturing the performances. Tiny Gallery Concerts are intimate concert settings by Morija Arts Centre at Maeder House Gallery, that connect musicians, artists, poets and other creatives through live performance.

Big thanks to Pj for his continuing support and sharing his time and skills with us, and to Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa and Glasswaters Foundation for partnering with us on this.
