The Up2Us Xperience
On the 15th of June 2010, Shikaya was invited by the Desmond Tutu Peace centre to bring the Up2Us Xperience. This was the first presentation of the Up2Us programme. The programme was presented to a group of more than 200 young participants from schools around Cape Town. The response from the participants proved the success of this production. Young people had the opportunity to meet new faces and make friends while speaking to each other about each other.
This Xperience allowed these young people to look at their own identity as well as the identity of others who are not in their immediate spaces. They also explored ways of making a difference and the actions it takes to make a change.
