  • Writing the Journey | Maokwo

    PROGRAMME Writing the Journey Through the Writing the journey Programme we aim to enable migrant women and young people to tell their stories authentically. As the world gets smaller through migration different people come together occupying a common land, however each person brings with them their individual story and experience of life, woven as Culture and Heritage. At MAOKWO, we endeavour to preserve these stories by giving them a voice and value. The writing the journey programme was born out of our #GIRLONFIRE project. Each year we run the WTJ programme every six months with different cohorts of 5-7 young adults and Women. The participants are taken through training & workshops on writing by industry practitioners. The journey helps them to pen down their authentic stories, which is then turned into a performance by the participant themselves. On the completion of the programme, the participants showcase their performances at popular venues, telling their stories to audiences.

  • Young Leadership Programme | Maokwo

    PROGRAMME Young Leadership Through the Young Leadership Programme we aim to enable migrant artists to develop & establish their creative practice and expose them to the creative & cultural industries, creating opportunities and equity. In the words of Cesar A Cruz; ‘Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable’, is a philosophy that deeply resonates with MAOKWO. Therefore, as an organisation we are dedicated to developing young talents from migrant communities and fostering a new generation of young leaders in the arts and our communities. The Young Leadership Programme was born out of our FUSION ARTIST NETWORK project. In the year-long programme, we work with 5-7 young people (aged 18-25) in each cohort. The participants are encouraged to develop their work through training & workshops by industry practitioners. They are also encouraged to network and build their own networks to establish themselves as artists. On the completion of the programme, the Young Leaders exhibit their artworks at a recognised institution, putting them at par with the professional world.
