In April ASSITEJ SA has welcomed five lovely interns to our organization with the help of First Rand. We have three interns assisting us in our Cape Town office, and two in our Johannesburg office at the National School of the Arts . The interns have already done their induction which introduced them to their new working environment, and each and every day for them is a learning journey.
As you know we are always excited to bring young, fresh minds to contribute to our on-going mission to bring theatre to our youth while creating opportunities for knowledge sharing and skills building. We are excited to walk this journey with them.
So, let’s welcome
Msawenkosi Mfikili (After School Game Changer Assistant)
Noluvuyo Jepe (Finance & Admin Assistant)
Mmapula Raphotle (Kickstarter Assistant)
Njunju Nontobeko Nxumalo (Theatre4Youth Assistant)
Akhona Jolingana (Marketing & Communication Assistant)
Hello fellow people in the artistic world! My name is Msawenkosi Mfikili, the young vibrant and vigilant After School Game Changer Assistant for 2019 in Cape Town. I’m very fascinated and enthusiastic about the opportunity that ASSITEJ SA has granted me to bridge the gap in theatre, and also to promote and be part of creating theatre for children by young people through education and access creation. I believe that if you can’t run you have to walk, and if you can’t walk then you have to crawl, because the aim is to keep moving. Being an ASSITEJ SA intern would be my stepping stone to my advanced Diploma in Theatre Making, as this has been my dream since I can remember.
