Kif Kif is already 5 years active in intercultural artcontest, we want to celebrate it with a specila edition of the Awards. Some participants and winners have far kicked it in the, Flemish cultural landscape. We want give the chance to a broad public to discover the parcours of those young people.
To consolidate: slam poetry
Slam poetry have arisen in the 1980s in Chicago as a response to the certified poetry-evening. Because slam is not well known in Flanders, we have organised the first slam lessons in 2009, within the framework of the Kif Kif Awards.. We looked for the crème de la crème of the Dutch slam scene. Blaxtar (winner of the ‘Grote Prijs van Nederland), Typhoon (winner of the ‘Grote Prijs van Nederland Gijs Ter Haar, Jose Klaase on 8 weeks time hey upgraded the level of the young talents.
This year new slam lessons take place n Antwerp, under accompaniment of mainly Dutch artists. On 13 November 3 finalists fight for a victory in the category slam.
To innovate: digital storytelling & Reality in disguise
Digital Storytelling is a recent term, risen from a movement, which uses new digital appliances to help ordinary people to tell stories in a dragging and emotional manner. These tales are usually rather short (less than 8 minutes) and can be used interactively. In ours tour trough schools we collect multiple stories of young students. These tales tell the something concerning themselves, family and their surroundings.
