Nairobi, 13 October, 2020 / 10:31 pm (ACI Africa).
Aspiring citizen journalists in all African countries are invited to apply for a video journalism workshop at SIGNIS-Africa, an official at the continental branch of the global Catholic Association for Communication has said.
In an interview with ACI Africa Tuesday, October 13, SIGNIS-Africa Head of Digital Desk, Fr. Reki Mashayamombe said the workshop will equip the Catholic youth with skills to tell stories of their home countries through short video clips.
“We are inviting citizen journalists who will tell stories which present Africans who do not allow themselves to be paralyzed by the present difficulties on the continent, nor give in to the gloom of sorrow and regret, nor morosely close in on themselves, or flee from reality,” Fr. Reki said.
He said SIGNIS-Africa is looking for journalists who can tell stories of people who are doing something simple yet extraordinary to keep the flame of hope alive in their individual and collective lives.
“The journalists will tell stories of people who show the victory of love over the root of evil, a victory that does not by-pass suffering and death, but passes through them, opening a path in the abyss, transforming evil into good,” he said.
