Open Design Afrika (ODA) is very proud to launch the first ODA Wetopia Academy in October 2019. The ODA Wetopia Academy aims to bring “Wetopia” into practice. The execution and implementation of all “ODA Wetopia Academy” projects are made possible by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
The first ODA Wetopia Community Activations will be hosted on 19-20 October 2019 which will also be the start of a yearlong community programme.
The citizens from Langa and citizens from Kensington will be the first participants. Using storytelling, song making and other creative tools, participants will unite for a common goal and gain key skills to help them shape a new community narrative.
They will ask questions like:
- Who are the heroes and change makers in your community?
- What do you want the world to know about your community?
- What is your collective narrative to the world?”
- What community interventions can you create to support and strengthen your new narrative?
