T.E.N Project Dinner

This year’s intake of participants in the Workspace’s T.E.N (The Employment Nation) project have finally reached the end of the programme. They had the opportunity to showcase their work at a dinner that they helped to organise and run on the night, and the evening proved to be a wonderful night out. They demonstrated their entrepreneurial flair and outsourced the entertainment for the evening. They managed to organise local performers who showed off their talents to the dinner guests with beautiful performances that ranged from poetry to acapella and solo artists singing. The evening was catered by Sharon who runs her bread making, lunch and coffee business from the Workspace and who also kindly makes lunch for the participants of the T.E.N project as it runs through the year.

The evening started with guests being welcomed with an option of locally produced wine or an authentic cup of umqombothi (African beer) made by one of the participants mothers’. The guests all had a chance to see the beautiful work that is on display at the Workspace as it is home to many different small https://www.cialissansordonnancefr24.com/cialis-pharmacie/ artisanal businesses that also play a part in the experience of the participants of the programme. The evenings programme then commenced with some catchy tunes sung by Stompie accompanied by his guitar. Robin Tugwell also showed off his talents on the guitar with some great songs. That was followed by a Xhosa poem recited by Zameka Ngalwa. The guests were also spoiled with a few acapella performances by a group of four girls from Imizamo Yethu who made up the group “New Generation”. This all took place while the guests were being served supper which consisted of a starter of freshly baked bread/toast with the Workshops famous snoek pate. Then trays of succulent braaied chicken and vegetables made the rounds with some fresh salad served as a side dish.

The evening ended with the participants work that they created throughout the programme, being auctioned and the highest bidders had the opportunity to go home with original, uniquely crafted pieces of furniture and artworks.

The night was a great success and the participants had a good opportunity to experience first-hand the work that goes into organising and running an event. They acquired skills that they would ordinarily not have been exposed to and it was a wonderful way to finish off the T.E.N Project experience.
