Various spots are being filled weekly/shared as volunteers get excited about the work, benefits and results of joining OAaSIS.
Just in case you forgot, the OAaSIS International Foundation needs YOUR help to make the dreams of many Jamaicans come through, and yes strengthening the tools to make Jamaica advance as a nation and in the human race. Youth also learn to apply creativity in all other areas they explore from business to.. ahh well just about all areas.
The Foundation empowers youth, sensitising them through the arts. The Arts are a critical tool in development and advancement of any people. Just think what the world would be like if no one was able to read, nor write, sing, dance, draw.
Aside from placing proper focus on the arts, youth all over are shown how to discover, hone and improve their skills and talents. They learn of the many careers existing from painting, architecture, stage and theatre production to being a chef.. all creative works.
The Foundation also has an ongoing club Pickney International Creative Youth Club establishing ongoing relationships with visited areas and to enable individuals to continue discovering and improving their skills. The arts are after all vital in understanding numeracy, literacy and even the sciences.
CURRENT PROJECTS of the FOUNDATION include:
In December the artists of OAaSIS will show artworks right till December 22 at Swept Away. Please see our catalogue and order.
CREATIVE WORKSHOP SERIES:
We host workshops, seminars, project and motivation sessions for youth, and we need funds as the list is growing. We will resume in November when we have received the books from Patrick Beckford and set the library on its way. Read more about the launch. See Farenheit in action.
