WAYout changes the lives of street, vulnerable and conflict affected young people through the arts. We offer training and shelter, make films that can effect change and record music that enables the excluded to re-engage. We promote artistic freedom, education and empowerment. WAYout provides certificated training courses in the arts: skills including digital media, photoshop, writing, shooting, editing and studio engineering and genres such as documentary, drama, current affairs or music clips. Filmmakers explore subjects as diverse as HIV and maternal mortality or comedy and music clips. They tell stories that their peers can relate to as well as those for an international audience. WAYout was founded in 2008 and has worked with over 2000 young people, mainly street youth, in Freetown in Sierra Leone. We have recorded 1000 tracks and 10 albums. We have run courses in filmmaking, editing, photoshop, journalism, music production and given over 400 certificates. So far (April 2017) over 810 people completed courses.
