We have been chatting these last few weeks with Banker who is part of the WeOwnTV team currently in Freetown recruiting young people for their 6 week film making programme latrer this year.

We wish them luck and invite you to take a look at their exciting project.

WeOwnTV is a collaborative media project that promotes self-expression as a way to explore our shared humanity and bridge cultural divides. Our first program uses community based media workshops to teach filmmaking techniques to a group of young Sierra Leonean ex-combatants and survivors of their country’s civil war. WeOwnTV will provide the technical support, encouragement and training that will allow these young adults to creatively produce their own media and share their experiences and ideas with the world.
