ARTS & CULTURE - History Of South African Film Small West African countries like Ivory Coast, burkino faso and Senegal have produced(relative to the rest of Africa) a large number of pathbreaking films http://www.sahistory.org.za/pages/artsmediaculture/pages/film-tv/features.htm
Extractions: HISTORY OF SOUTH AFRICA N FILM - Where have all the features gone? FEATURES oral history and indigenous modes of communication. Since the end of the colonial era, films have been produced which respond creatively to the ever shifting conditions and dilemmas the continent faces. This despite the fact that most African countries are poor (which means less money available to finance films) and they lack the necessary infrastructure (transport, film equipment and facilities). sell This has been both a strength and a weakness. You might not have seen them on TV or in a cinema, but yes, South Africa does make its own feature films, telling stories about South Africans and reflecting the varied lives we lead here. Unfortunately, these films are few and far Why do so few films - when compared not just with Hollywood (which dominates the film industry worldwide), but when compared also with other countries like Australia, Canada, Egypt and India - come out of South Africa?

Extractions: "Lessons from Mount Kilimanjaro is an ethnographic study of a school and community in East Africa. Stambach focuses on the role school plays in the development of the children's identity and relationships to their parents and community, as well as in the development of the region. At issue here are the competing influences of Western modernity and the cultural traditions of East Africa-ideas about gender roles, sexuality, identity, and family and communal obligations are all at stake. Stambach looks at the controversial practice of female circumcision in the context of school and community teachings about girls' bodies and examines cultural signifiers like music, clothing and food to discuss the tensions in the region."

Extractions: Termitomyces Termitomyces is a paleotropical genus of agarics intriguing both to mycologists and entomologists. As the name might suggest the species are considered obligate symbionts of termites belonging to the subfamily Macrotermitinae. The termites culture the fungus - in much the same way as the attine ants culture members of the Agaricaceae. The Termitomyces mycelium grows on comb-like structures made from faecal pellets (see photo below). These pellets are made of digested plant material passed quickly through the termite gut. After some weeks the plant material is degraded so much by the fungus, that it is palatable to the termites. Termitomyces titanicus (the largest mushroom in the world according to Guinness Book of Records) has a cap diameter of up to 1 meter, whereas Termitomyces microcarpus rarely exceeds 2 cm. Some species are annulate, some not. Some have large velar remains on the cap, others are smooth and viscid. Although the genus covers a wide macromorphological range, the species are not very distinct microscopically. The unifying characters of the Termitomyces species are the pinkish spores, the termite association and the subterranean elongation of the stipe called a pseudorhiza, through which the fruitbodies of most species are connected to the comb in the termite nest. Furthermore most of the species have a pronounced umbo or papilla called a perforatorium, which is thought to play a role during the penetration of the soil.

Overview - part 2 / part 1 Go to: Shebeens Clubs Bat Centre Contents page (continued) And there's lots more. Techno-raves and acid-house music have found their own variations in local culture. Musicians from throughout Africa perform in nightclubs like La Frontiere in Hillbrow, Johannesburg - in fact, in nightclubs dotted throughout the city. On offer is an exotic, heady blend of music. Search it out - it's among the best examples of popular culture. And you could catch a famous pop figures like The Rolling Stones or Michael Jackson on their African adventure. South Africa, is, in a sense, a melting pot: there are cultural influences here, mutating and in flux, from Britain, the United States, Europe, from China and the East, all combining with cultures created by local history. For spectacle, there's the familiar Boswell Wilkie circus with acrobats, animals and oh-so-local clowns whose slapstick pokes fun at us. We could be in the middle of Europe. Then there's the Coon Carnival (yes, that word's still used, but it's lost its racial connotations) in Cape Town on the day after New Year, a colourful, brightly-costumed Mardi Gras of competing bands, as South African as bobotie or vetkoek. Food is another manifestation of popular culture. It ranges from sumptuous traditional Cape cooking inherited from the early white settlers, to traditional boerekos meaty farm fare to bunny chow (a hollowed-out half-loaf of bread stuffed with curries) to pap and wors, the maize porridge/spicy sausage combination that's almost a national emblem. But for popular culinary culture you'll have to tour the city streets where you'll find everything from sheep's head, trotters and chicken feet cooked on the pavement while you wait to Italian pizzas and American-style hamburgers for sale.

Organisational cultures influence the outcomes of project outcomes Lewis, D.; Bebbington, A.; Batterbury, S.; Shah, A.; Olson, E.; Siddiqi, M.; Duvall, S. / Centre for Civil Society, (CCS) LSE This paper examines how context, practice and power influence development projects, in particular projects that aim to empower organisations of the poor. It argues that where development projects involve multiple organisations (such as donors, government agencies, NGOs and grassroots groups) understanding cultures both within and between organisational actors helps to explain important aspects of project performance. Findings are based on projects in Bangladesh, Peru and Burkino Faso. The paper argues that organisational culture is continually being produced within projects, and that while sometimes this tends towards integration, often it tends towards fragmentation. This fragmentation reflects the range of different cultures within different development organisations, and is an important reason of why some projects fail and why ideas stated in project documents are often not realised.

Extractions: Africa 2000 - the context Despite this 'gloomy' analysis, the African art scene is thriving. There has been the upsurge of various African art forms such as music, literature, film, art and design. This invigorating cultural scene has appealed to both the intellectual 'high brow' and the 'popular culture' audiences. African art forms have gained recognition and acceptance worldwide, from Latin American salsa music, through genres of European pop, to current contemporary art and media offerings such as the annual International film festival in Burkino Faso in recent times. African orientated artists, such as Jean Claude Basquiat, and Chris Ofili have achieved international acclaim for their work, whilst the Congolese artist, Tshibumba Kanda-Matulu, is famous internationally for his work on colonialism. The Notting Hill Carnival in London, of Afro-Caribbean origin, has substantial African and African-inspired contributions to the carnival through song, food and dance. The same is true of the carnival extravaganzas in Rio de Janeiro, Trinidad and elsewhere. African culture also has a significant influence on the development of cultural forms and styles that informs street cultures and youth styles, such as 'rap' and street fashion across the globe. This upsurge in African derived cultural creativity needs to be considered critically. Who has ultimate economic and political control of the African cultural market place? Who determines what African cultural forms and styles are relevant and accepted at international levels? Has the viewing of African art forms and culture changed from its perceived 'exotic' status at the beginning of the 20th century? Most importantly how relevant is art and culture to African personal perceptions and life in the new millennium?

WATER PROJECT ACTIVITIES The efforts and plans of Echoes of the Ancestors water project together with the efforts of villagers in the Ioba Provence of Burkina Faso near the small town of Dano, has resulted in the development of three dam/reservoirs. These villagers are all members of an indigenous tribe of people known as the Dagara. These reservoirs consist of simple structures built with concrete and dirt against the flow of water. Echoes of the Ancestors plans on continuing to assist the Dagara in these activities as follows: (1) improve and maintain the three existing reservoirs; (2) construct water wells in the area; (3) construct additional reservoirs and wells in the Ioba Provence; (4) develop agricultural irrigation; (5) test and analyze the water and soils in the area; and, (6) develop a program of agricultural education utilizing the expertise of agricultural and water experts from the United Sates. Fund raising activities to support these future projects are also planned. All of these activities, and other activities of the group, are and will be under the supervision of Dr. Malidoma Somé, the President of
