IN DANISH...
Beskrivelse:

• "Drømmer for livet" – et foredrag (eller en heldags-workshop) hvorfor du ikke skal være bange for at drømme. Tværtimod – det er netop drømmerne, som det moderne samfund har allermest brug for. Hvem er “drømme-dræberne” og hvordan undgår du dem? Hvordan får du dine største drømme til at gå i opfyldelse? Med udgangspunkt i sit eget liv som “professionel drømmer” giver Mik Aidt indblik i en lang række aspekter omkring det at turde drømme. Læs mere...

• "Afrikas kulturelle diamantminer" – et foredrag kulturens betydning i udviklingssammenhæng. Kunst er ikke en luksus, men en nødvendighed - og allermest i et samfund, som har brug for økonomisk udvikling. Det er ihvertfald Mik Aidts påstand. Hør om, hvorfor og hvordan Afrika kunne gøre sin kunst og sine kulturer til kontinentets nye diamantminer i det 21. århundrede. Læs mere...

• "Verdensmusik" – et foredrag om begrebet ‘world music’ eller ‘verdensmusik’. Verdensmusikkens historie gennem de sidste 200 år. Hvilke genrer og hvilke kunstnere er de vigtigste at kende i dag? Musikeksempler og anekdoter. Få indsigt i de globale sammenhænge i musikkens verden.

• "Afrikanernes nøgle til fremtiden" – et foredrag om afrikansk kultur. Hvor er de afgørende forskelle mellem danskernes og afrikanernes måde at tænke på? Hvad kan vi lære af afrikanere? For nok er der fattigdom i Afrika, men der er også utroligt meget rigdom – rigdom på samvær, familiesammenhold, livsglæde og godt humør, kulturtraditioner og ikke mindst: tid. Altsammen statistiske mangelvarer i det vestlige samfund.

• "På opgave i Afrika". Hvad du har brug for at vide, hvis du skal på reportagerejse eller udsendes som projektarbejder i Afrika? Om AV-midler (dias, powerpoint, video, internet) og ikke mindst lyden, der ofte behandles som stedbarn i de elektroniske medier. Men også om kulturelle forhold og "fælder". Specielt rettet mod Danidas rejsestipendiater og udsendte for MS, Danida og FN.

• "Afrikas musik". Et diasshow – eller rettere: en "illustreret radiomontage", hvor studieværten og to musikere oven i købet er til stede i lokalet. Ved at vise, hvordan folk i Afrika lever og udtrykker sig gennem deres musik, introduceres publikum samtidigt for nogle af de stærke afrikanske kulturtræk, som kan vende op og ned på en danskers tilværelse.


Foredragene
henvender sig til gymnasie-niveau og op. Såvel foredrag som dias- og powerpoint-shows kan tilpasses målgruppe og situation, og kan kombineres med workshops og optræden.
Kan udover dansk også holdes på engelsk.
AV-udstyr: Aftales nærmere på forhånd.
Kommer til: Foredragsarrangement, Folkeoplysning, Workshops, Sommerkurser, Højskoler

Mik Aidt
er musiker og uddannet journalist med over 25 års engagement i afrikansk kultur og musik, samt musik fra Asien og Latinamerika. Har foretaget i alt 16 rejser til Afrika, de fleste udsendt som journalist for enten DR eller Danida. Var i syv år fastansat på P3, hvor han bl.a. i en årrække var redaktør på programmet "Verdensmusik" og "Global Beat". Sad i seks år i bestyrelsen for Center for Kultur og Udvikling.

LIBERTY
is the only thing you cannot have unless you are willing to give it to others.

William Allen White




OUR MAIN CONCERN
at Mild Productions is not to make money. We have made it a rule to only take on assignments which are either exciting, challenging, or groundbreaking – or which contain elements of all three.

A fundamental principle at Mild Productions is that we always
keep a promise.
