The Creative Change Laboratory (CCoLAB) offers a maker-space and an immersive learning programmefor marginalized youth in Cape Town. in 2019, CCoLAB will run a tailored programme to support LGBTIAQ youth in Cape Town.

Challenge

South Africa is defined by deep rifts of inequality. Our history of slavery, colonialism and apartheid means that systemic racism is a huge challenge. In addition to this gender disparities and gender-based violence, xenophobia and rural/urban divides continue to be huge challenges. LGBTIAQ youth experiences prejudice motivated violence and exclusion in addition to the above leading to poverty, unemployment and other forms of exclusion.

Solution

LGBTIAQ youth, especially those from marginalized backgrounds have limited access to (1) skills and tools which have the potential to empower them, and (2) visibility and voice so that their stories impact the world. The Creative Change Laboratory (CCoLAB) offers a structured learning programme to empower marginalized youth, access to technical experts and mentors, and access to a free maker space. This is the second time we're running CCoLAB and we're building on our knowledge from 2019.

Long-Term Impact

The Creative Change Laboratory works to collaborate with youth people not as participants in the project but as collaborators and co-creators of a better future. Through the project the LGBTIAQ youth we work with will have access to a learning programme, t mentors, and a maker-space over a 6-month period in 2019. However beyond this period, the impact will be far larger. It's imaged that each LGBTIAQ youth will work towards developing a creative solution for their community.
