Do you have something to say, information you are trying to get out?
This session will bring together participants to convey messages through music and creative means.
Contribute your issue and expertise, and work together to distill complex ideas into a singular message, through music. We will go through a process of thinking creatively. How does everyone's work fit into one collective picture? Build narrative, through creating music. Through collaborative music techniques, Juliani and Valsero will help stitch the ideas together, simply and effectively. They will also explain how they have done this before in the Kenyan and Cameroonian context.
You do not need any prior music experience! If you are a musician, we'd also love for you to join and collaborate.We hope to create music during this session. But everyone will leave with an understanding of how to use creative methods in knowledge / data activism, to reach audiences, conceptualize complex issues, and to package your info or messages effectively. And how to work through collaborative processes -- with musicians and artists -- to do so.
Will be in English and French
