About the project: 

According to Motif Records,

16s for 16 is a youth arts project initiated by Tumi Molekane in 2012 with support from Motif records. Through various one of a kind arts projects it seeks to reunify and channel the youth voice into an inspired collective force.

The first project was a 16 minute epic hip hop track that featured some the best young rappers from southern Africa speaking on youth issues important to them. The song was released on youth day for free online download and created frenzy within the hip hop community and much interest outside it.

The second project was genre mash-up collaboration track featuring artists such as RJ Benjiman, Max Hoba, The Soil, Dineo Ranaka, Riky Rick, Cassper Nyovest and many more titled ‘No Time Out’, this time employing the talents of 16 popular crooners and songbirds to deliver a radio friendly song that spoke to youth issues. Also Released on youth day, the song got great number of streams online with a respectable radio airplay.

For our third project we use film as the medium. In keeping with the June 16 inspired theme, we are calling on all young film makers to send us their June 16 inspired one minute films, setting our goal at curating 16 films for June 16 2014.

Submissions are open to the public for young people aged between 16-34 with the theme “THEY CANT TELL MY STORY BETTER THAN ME” focused on South Africa’s 20 years of democracy.

"We encourage all entrants/film-makers to use the technology available to them to make their own one-minute film about anything they want to. The 16 shortlisted films and their directors/producers will be profiled on our website and through our broadcast partners."

"We feel this project is not only an exciting way to galvanize the youth but also an important tool for expression in a time when political parties are clamouring to stand for the countries future on their behalf."

"For us Youth Day represents an unwavering pursuit for ones purpose in a young country battling to become as great as the world imagines it to be."

Good luck!
