When we were given the opportunity to help out the amazing people from CocreatSA with their Mobility Indaba, we knew we had to send our Live Society team and one of our rigs out for their event. The Mobility Indaba is an open forum dedicated to finding ways for people to be connected, and co-creating new ways to move. The event was hosted over three days at the Kenilworth Race Course and saw a host of bicycle related activities, workshops and round table discussions for the communities to enjoy.
The event saw a half-pipe where BMX-riders, skateboarders and rollerbladers demonstrating their skills and inspired the youth that alternative transport can be cool. There were musicians and artists who kept the audience entertained, including two of our staff members. Bernard Knight and Devon Swart rocked out on our Pioneer decks and hopefully inspired some of the young minds to pursue a career in music. The Cape Audio College Live Society were on hand to make sure that everything ran perfectly. These events allow our students to gain valuable real world experience which puts them ahead of the rest when they leave our doors and enter the professional world of live sound.
The event was also a platform where creatives, entrepreneurs and those with a knack for tech showcased their innovations in the area of mobility. It allowed them to interact directly with the public and each other through workshops and practical demonstrations.
Sponsoring these events is our way of giving back to the community and hopefully inspiring young minds that a career in the audio industry is more than just making music. We would like to thank the Live Society guys who offered up their time for this charity event and for Bernard Knight and Devon Swart for playing for the crowd.
