The new Academy of Creativity project: Art for Education was launched in January 2016 in the Walmer township, in Port Elizabeth.
As a result of IMBEWU's interest in applying its expertise in the domain of alternative education, this project prioritises a holistic approach and the personal development of the children and teenagers by relying on a new interactive channel to which the children can relate – artistic activities. This tool targets a different category of the youth bearing in mind differences in abilities and preferences.
Music, visual arts and drama make up the main activities of the project. Art as an educational tool is a central feature of the project as the children also benefit from learning support and life skills sessions after normal school classes.
