I'm leaving on 3rd June for Suai to work with YoMaTre. We will be discussing this website and where and how we are going on from here. We will be arranging a launch date too.
Apart form the normal planning and discussion I will be working with Annie Sloman, ex Bibi Bulak and community arts worker and YoMaTre. We will be workshopping story telling skills
by critically examining our video footage and our photographs and figuring out what stories they tell about us. We will be working together to produce some work for the launch of Suai Media Space. In mid to late June we will be working together on broadband from Dili, so keep checking in to find out more.
Emanuel Braz- one of the movers and shakers behind the Uma Media House Project is in Melbourne at present so we met up and he's confident YoMaTre will have an Internet connection within the next couple of months! YayH! He will be coming done to Suai in June to meet with the Suai mob and we will be connecting with him in Dili.
That's Emanuel that Marsha's leaning on, on the right at METAC 2 years ago.
Emanuel has expressed interest in blogging the Uma Media House story and he's going to introduce me to Abe Barreto well known Timorese blogger and story-teller from Suai - so stay posted for that too.
