Life Talk is often approached by sponsors to initiate interventions/projects that will achieve a particular outcome. Life Talk creates thought-provoking projects that build awareness, promote values, and assist in making decisions and choices that will lead to the desired outcome.
LIFE COMES IN ‘CANS’ NOT CANNOTS
Talks are given to children from poor communities about being able to stand up for themselves and say “I CAN reach my greatest potential”, in light of the various challenges they face during their teens. Life comes in ‘CANS’ not can-nots empowers the youth to say ‘I CAN’ whilst saying ‘no’ to drugs and alcohol, as well as many of the other challenges that they face on a daily basis. The Peninsula Beverage Company (PenBev) sponsor Life Talk Forum’s Cape Director, Suzie Linstrom, at their premises to give age appropriate talks to learners.
LIFE TALK FLASHMOB
Life Talk teamed up with a dynamic young group of dancers that call themselves the Street Stylers, (headed and choreographed by Blake Williams) managed by 2nd-Chance. These children have made a stand against drugs and alcohol abuse by using dance as a way of steering clear and keeping themselves focused on positive choices. They have sought learners from various schools in the very communities that have been hardest hit by drugs, alcohol and gangetrism. The learners have been training for months for today’s flashmob.
Sponsored by Peninsula Beverages Company, The Association for Responsible Alcohol Use, Night Vision Marketing (a brand activation company), The V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
