IN a bid to help local artistes to improve technology skills that can be applied on their careers, Kunzwana Trust successfully held a digital technologies workshop on 11 November.

It was facilitated by William Sampindi, the Arts Director of 14th Avenue Digital, assisted by Ian White of Kunzwana Trust.

Participants included young emerging artistes Dalubuhle Mdlongwa (comedian), CeeJay Tshuma, Ethan Sesedza (musicians), Helen Nyati (vocalist) and Natasha Nyoni (scriptwriter).

The workshop also attracted established artistes such as Rachael Ncube (poet), Vuyo Brown and Tariro Gurure.

The workshop took the form of inclusive and open sharing of experiences in order to identify individual potential for self-actualisation based on cultural and artistic identity.

Participants agreed that such opportunities to advance in the digital space are crucial for artistes’ survival especially on the digital age as most works are done online.

“The workshop was very informative. It covered most topics on digitalisation that we tend to ignore and take lightly.

If there could be more of these it would be very helpful to local artistes as we have learnt how to engage with our audience online,” said Tendai Mavengeni.

“The workshop was very insightful, it helped in every way possible. It cleared a lot of questions that I had and the material was presented in a clear and easy to understand manner.

“I had a great time. I learnt so much and was excited to go home and use new functions. I would love to attend more training sessions like these,” said April Lloyd who was also a participant.
