      • When the lights go out


        from Stuart Thembisile Lewis Added 22 0 0

        Part of the 25 Voices project that my Television 3 class produced for our third term. Check out the whole project here: www.25voices.org. ____________________________________________________________________________________ As of the beginning of this year, over 15 million South Africans live on social grants. Future and his family are just some of the many people eking out an existence with these limited funds. They receive two R310 Child Support Grants every month. With this as the only income in the household, they have to pay for food, toiletries and electricity. Their electricity supply was installed by the local Makana Municipality, which buys units directly from Eskom and sells it to their constituents at a mark-up. This, combined with inflation and rapidly escalating base rates for electricity, makes just keeping the lights on a daily struggle for the poorest of the poor. A day’s worth of electricity costs Future’s family R22 and they barely receive enough units to make it through the day. More often than not, they will wake up and not be able to wash clothes or cook food until someone has made the long walk up the hill to the nearest shop that sells Makana electricity. Future is not the only child who goes to school hungry in his community. All he wants is for Eskom to take over the municipal electricity supply so he and his community can afford to keep their lights on. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Starring Sandisiwe Future Veto Crew: - Stuart Thembisile Lewis - Nolo Lakaje - Anelisa Salavu

                • Granby Park - A Model For Vacant Sites Everywhere


                  from Ishka Films Added

                  This video won 1st place in the IBM // People For Smarter Cities contest in 2013. Directed by Mia Mullarkey Upstart is an Irish non-profit voluntary arts collective. In 2013 they transformed a vacant Dublin site into a pop up park, a place of creativity, nature, imagination, play and beauty for everyone. For four weeks, there were free arts events, outdoor cinema & theatre performances, live music, educational activities and a pop-up café open to the public. All materials used in creating the park were recycled, up-cycled or borrowed, and the project attracted over 500 volunteers and over 1,000 funders. Granby park was a huge success with local residents, tourists, and the city council, and so Upstart are currently working on a downloadable app to help other communities build their own parks, as well as offering workshops across the country and beyond. www.ishkafilms.com www.upstart.ie
