Rainbow Media (138-856 NPO) is a South African non-profit organization that promotes and facilitates community development through media (such as art, music, drama, video, communication, and so on).
We do not believe in working on our own. We feel that the best way to do things is by partnering with others, building common languages and mixing things up. For this reason we choose to use for our projects Participatory Design approaches and methodologies.
For the last four years our members have been involved with the community of Samora Machel, an under-resourced area on the outskirts of Cape Town, supporting a community-based radio station, a youth organization, and a few individuals and groups in developing their projects and honing their skills through co-design workshops and mentoring.
We promote exchanges between people of different countries and cultures, with a particular focus on projects involving Italy and South Africa.
