3rd – 12th May 2018
2nd Organizational Development Workshop
The second intensive training workshop to develop the capacity of the partner organizations to integrate the training programs for youth in the Arts into their activities in their countries.
The second 9 day workshop included intensive training in advanced IT, further courses on content management, managing social media, music school administration, cultural management and financial management of a sustainable social enterprise. A new grant writing module based on the results a participant survey made at the 2017 workshop allowed the trainees to gain insights into the process of grant writing and fund-raising by preparing their own grant application. During the content management program they were able to complete the work on 4 new websites for Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, South Sudan and Tanzania.
The partners also developed both national and interregional project ideas in the networking section of the workshop and developed and refined their dissemination strategies.
The proximity to East African Performing Arts Market (DOADOA), which ran concurrently with the workshop, allowed them to take part in a dedicated conference session and expand their networking opportunities, gain insight into new trends in the industry and develop interregional projects to disseminate the results of the project throughout the region.
