Our Approach

Phakama’s approach transcends age, experience and culture. Driven by a common desire to make high quality             performance, it is fueled by the diversity of all those involved.

Through a process that we call Give and Gain, learning becomes two-way; everyone has something they can give to the project and everyone has something to gain. And through this interchange of skills, knowledge, information and ideas, everyone becomes both student and teacher.

We are committed to the practice of cultural exchange and the celebration of shared experiences; by promoting a non-hierarchical educational philosophy through the medium of the arts and training participants to become the Phakama facilitators of the future.
