Tech Tamale | Children fly drones at Ibrahim Mahama Redclay Studio

Story Zakaria Abdul Hakim Cisse || Sanatu Zambang

Things just got better in Tamale with the presence of the Savannah Centre for Contemporary Art.

Aside its enormous works in promoting arts and saving historical spaces, the SCCA is mentoring young people interested in arts.

At their Redclay centre in Jana Kpeng, the centre has created space to teach children. The Redclay use their experimental aircrafts as classrooms to teach. This, the founder explained will create a motivating environment for the children.

One of the children who has shown keen interest in this training is Abdul-Latif; son of the Assembly member of the locality where Redclay is situated.

Within few training sessions with Ibrahim Mahama, he is flying drones and also teaching his colleagues in the area. Abdul-Latif has also learned to take photos with the camera and does that passionately.

The drone practice with his community mates happens like their usual play grounds. They play with it at Redclay like playing with sand.

As fulfilling as this seems to Ibrahim and his crew, he still wants to bring together many children in and around Tamale to groom them on these things.

Since the opening of the Redclay, people of all classes, have visited it to see for themselves especially, the aircrafts.

The Redclay is opened for visitations on all days except for Fridays.
