On February 20 and 21, SIHMA and Cultural Video Africa met for a workshop with NOREC (the Norwegian Agency for Exchange Cooperation), an executive body under the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Through what they call ‘mutual exchange’ they aim to help achieve the goals of Norwegian development policy. This means that they work with international partners who want to use the exchange model to learn from each other and develop.
SIHMA and Cultural Video are applying for a Project (MEDIA ON THE MOVE) and this was part of our feasibility study. The goal of the project is for SIHMA and Cultural Video to work together and learn from each other, sharing pour professional expertise: research on the migratory phenomenon and award media production, in order to allow the exchange of two professionals between Kenya and South Africa.
The workshop took place in the fancy office of Culturale Video Africa in Nairobi, the twodecked Nairobi Bus.
