Namibia: Germany Donates to Arts School

The German Embassy in Namibia recently handed over equipment for a Digital Photography Workshop to the Rehoboth School of Arts.

The workshop will take place November and December this year for children and youth from Rehoboth. The equipment consists, amongst others, of digital cameras, a printer, memory cards and a voucher for the Rehoboth School of Arts to print the results of the workshop on canvas. The donation is to the value of N$ 13 000.

With the donated equipment, Manager and Founder of the Rehoboth School of Arts, renowned artist, Andrew van Wyk, will introduce a digital photography and digital printing on canvas workshop for exhibition purposes to the youth and pupils in Rehoboth. Since digital photography has become a popular art form around the world, van Wyk will focus on teaching digital art, digital design and digital print. Works from the workshop will be exhibited in the Rehoboth School of Arts in the beginning of 2013.

Through the workshop, the German Embassy hopes to contribute to raising awareness and appreciation of the critical role arts plays in a society, and that all art forms can also assume a substantial role for income generation and poverty reduction.
