The cut-off date for submitting applications is Friday, 14 September 2018. The classes will run from September 2018 until end of November 2018.
The programme seeks to equip young amateur photographers who aspire to be better photographers with necessary skills.
The entrants must be aged between 18 and 30 years and reside in the Eastern Region of Ekurhuleni, which include Kwa-Thema, Langaville, Tsakane, Geluksdal, Duduza and Springs. The beginners’ photography classes will be held at Kwa-Thema Library.
The classes are not a learnership or employment and therefore participants will not be paid remunerations and neither will their meal nor transport costs be covered. Cameras will be provided for the duration of the programme.
Ekurhuleni’s Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for Community Services Cllr Dora Mlambo encouraged the youth and women to take advantage of this skill development opportunity.
“There is a very high demand for the free photography classes and we can only accept a limited number of students which include women in this programme. The photography classes will be very beneficial to the aspiring photographers who are looking forward to a fulfilling career in photography. It will improve their skill level to a stage where they will know how to capture subjects and objects correctly,” Cllr Mlambo said.
The classes will be presented one day per week, on Tuesdays from 10:00 to 13:00 at Kwa-Thema Library.
Interested candidates can get an application form at the Springs Art Gallery.
