Happy 4th Birthday Sapphire

I must say that I do not know how we made it this far without you. Everyday I stop and stare in amazement of how we managed to get to this point. Without each and everyone of you, we never would have made it this far. How time flies so quickly. Sapphire Community Group (Sapphire Ministries) is happy to announce that on the 31st of May we will be 4 years old. To celebrate our achievements and learnings over the years, we thought we would get videos from any past staff member, volunteer, partners, trustees, event attendees, speakers or artists or a young person who has been a part of Sapphire to share their experiences.

For our forth birthday, we aim to raise £4000 (£1000 for every year) which will go to our summer performing arts school which will sponsor 100 young people.

Thank you for all your support over the years and we look forward to helping support our community and building up a generation of young leaders.

THE FILM MAKING APPRENTICESHIP

Sapphire is happy to announce our new film apprenticeship programme starting this Thursday! Only 15 slots available! If you want to sign up; email the team now on andecia.sapphirecommunity@gmail.com or media@sapphireministriesrtwv.org

Research has shown, that documentaries can empower young people to grow without restraint as people. Teamwork, critical thinking, creativity, autonomy, patience, and commitment are aspects that working in the production of audiovisual works can stimulate growth in for a young person. This programme will allow young people to develop these skills. Above all, this programme will give them the opportunity to say what’s on their mind and believe in the possibility of change.

We will train 15 young people a cohort and take them on a 8 week programme to design a documentary episode. We will train them and develop their skills. We will take them on a trip with industry experts and at the end of the programme we will offer them an accredited certificate and a professional portfolio to show potential employers. We aim to train 16-19 years olds a year on the filmmaking industry. 

WHAT IS YOUR FLAVOUR?

Here at Sapphire we will try and do one documentary a year. I realised that there is 4 different ways we can impact the world. Through what we listen to, through what we read and through what we watch. Our aim at SCG is to foster a positive impact through media. We want to make films that would inspire, empower and motivate our generation to greatness. This would be our first of many documentaries. If you asked me two years ago if I watch documentaries, my answer would be no. And the reason why, is because I thought they were boring. If you ask the consensus of those in the population aged 13 to 30, their answer would be identical to mine. The notion behind the paradigm of documentaries, is that they are not entertaining nor inspiring.

This is What's Your Flavour!

Everything we do at SCG is to break the glass ceiling institutions and regulations. We want stand out and make a difference. The aim of this documentary, is to showcase the lives of 12 creatives. We will take you behind the walls of dreams. We will take you behind the streams of pain. We will take you behind desperation and depression. We will take you to places were legacies and visions were birthed. We are giving you front row seats to the reign of dynasties. From the cries of singers, to the scars of poets, to the starvation of actresses, to the protests of artists, to the wars of creative entrepreneurs and to the fight of a leaders. We aim that in us being transparent, we can give you the ability to fight for what you believe in.

No matter what you like. No matter your dreams. No matter what flavour, you like, we know and believe that your crazy ideas can become a reality.

Tune in for an episode every month!

THE SAPPHIRE RADIO STATION

There are 4 ways people retain information, learn or are entertained. The channels, are through what they watch, read, through socialising/ events and lastly through what they listen to. Here at Sapphire our goal is to transform and revolutionise the world as we know it. We want to the be voice of love, life and hope. We want to foster a community where we build up homes and not tear down dreams. We want to motivate, inspire and empower our generation.
This is not just any radio station but a home for our generation. A place where no one is judged and everyone can voice out their concerns and device a strategy for change.

This is a station where we tackle the concerns of young people. A place where we highlight the day to day struggles. A place where we stand and own up our scars and say yes, we made it. A place where we take off the masks and stand in the sun.

The media is a powerful tool. We have created this show to address and discuss everyday issues affecting young people. To get involved or to feature on the show, email the team now on media@sapphireministriesrtwv.org
