Prompting thoughts and prompting conversations.
We’re excited to announce that over the next few weeks, we’ll be sending out a series of prompts aimed at facilitating meaningful and constructive discourse. the prompts will be intended to spark nuanced conversations, and there's a few ways in which you can be a part of them.
Here's how it's going to work :
Every Sunday evening for the next few weeks, a prompt will be released on ukuzibuza.com with some accompanying links
From Monday to Wednesday we'll be collecting thoughts and short responses to the prompts through our Instagram Stories on @ukuzibuza
These responses will then be curated and collected into a springboard article that will go up here on ukuzibuza.com
And then :
From Wednesday to Friday, we'll be engaging with longer pieces written in response to the prompts. Some of these will be pre-written, but we're inviting you to submit a piece tackling any aspect of the prompt, using the springboard article to spark ideas.
At the end of each week we will release a recording of a verbal discussion to close off the conversations and establish some key takeaways. These discussions will be held amongst a few people who voice particularly interesting and compelling arguments, as well people who are especially well-read on a certain topic.
If you’d like to be involved in a bigger way :
If you'd like to write a piece, suggest a point for further discussion within a prompt, or voice your opinion in a verbal discussion, DM us on Instagram and we'll gladly consider your proposal.
We hope each prompt will inspire meaningful, insightful and important discourse. Go to @ukuzibuza on Instagram tomorrow, Monday 10 August, to start the first of many conversations. We hope these discussions can be informative, helpful, and lasting.
