One of Flow’s more creative and dynamic clients is Wits University’s Drama for Life (DFL) organisation.
Drama for Life – hosted by the Dramatic Arts Division in the Wits School of the Arts – offers honours, master’s and PhD programmes which build capacity in HIV/AIDS education through applied drama and theatre.
The DFL programme attracts drama practitioners from across the African continent and, by means of an intensive programme, teaches them how to use drama and applied theatre in HIV/AIDS education.
Flow designed and built an informative and interactive website for DFL which features news updates and blogs, as well as information on academic programmes, conferences and their annual festival.
Recently Flow has been focused on ensuring that the DFL website has become a useful resource for the organisation’s biggest events of the year, the 2010 Drama for Life “Sex Actually” Festival and the upcoming 2010 Drama for Life Africa Research Conference.
Both the festival and the conference attract some of the industry’s most well-respected academics, playwrights and students, who learn how to use drama and theatre to address issues relating to sex and HIV/AIDS.
Flow currently maintains the DFL website and assists the team in writing news and blogs for the site and sub-editing their news and blog content. In addition the Flow writing team attends events and produces news stories, as well as assisting with content upload to static pages and photo galleries.
I would like to commend the DFL team. They have worked extremely hard to ensure that their website continues to be a dynamic one. Thanks to the upload of fresh daily content, DFL users are guaranteed access to new, interesting articles about one of the country’s most innovative drama programmes.
It has been great fun working on the DLF festival and conference content and I am really looking forward to seeing some of the quality productions mentioned in the festival line-up.
