Teaching multimedia at an art academy
This placement/voluntary work will take place at the biggest and most renowned art academy of Tanzania, the Bagamoyo Art School. The school is looking for volunteers with skills in the area of multimedia - with a focus on animation. The volunteers should be able to communicate their expertise when they teach, and they should assist and accompany the students with their projects of media production. The position will not be paid, but volunteers can join all other classes offered at the academy.
The school has been founded in 1963 after the end of colonialism to make Tanzanians proud of their cultural heritage and arts. Founded as the “National Performing Arts Company”, the focus in the beginning was on drumming, acrobatics and acting. At the end of the 1970’s the National Performing Arts Company had been abolished and the Art Academy had been launched. Other performing arts such as music forms different than drumming had been added, and also plastic and visual arts such as painting and sculpturing. Today, the range of studies is completed by the areas of stage technology (lighting, sound, make-up) and digital art (multimedia, graphic design, animation).
Some of the most famous artists and musician of the country are graduates of the school and they still stay in constant contact with it. The school is beautifully located in the middle of a park which is shaded by a population of old trees, right next to a beach. The surroundings and the big amount of people who are interested in arts make this place especially inspiring for artists. Interns/Volunteers will be integrated as part of the teaching staff. They will be introduced to the syllabus and should teach in accordance to it.
