The launch of the DRUMLINE OUTREACH programme with the mentors such as Ashwin Willemse Orient Group, and other facilitators, will enable us to build local groups of musicians, dancers and visual artists,under one foundation banner to enable them to:
- Be INSPIRED by workshops and training with accomplished facilitators and established bands/dance groups and artists.
- ENGAGE in events, competitions and parades.
- Participate in opportunities to EDUCATE them with "Train the Trainers" workshops, mentorship projects in training for future employment opportunities within the Marching Show Bands community - such as employment in the military, facilitation of drumline groups, project and events co-ordination, sound engineering, costume design and manufacture.
Our goal is to have a total of 40 youth engaged for this year's programmes.
Donations will enable us to continue to develop the youth, keeping them off the streets and be involved in project which includes dance, music, and art.
