Talent Search for Durban’s MWYD
The official video for Mini World Youth Day. “The Mighty One”
One of the events taking place at Mini World Youth Day is “Catholics Have Talent”. This showcase is open to all registered conference participants. Your deadline is Monday!
Plans are underway for MWYD, which will be held from December 6-10 at the Durban Exhibition Centre, to unite Catholic young people from Southern Africa to celebrate their Christianity, community, and unity while experiencing the chosen theme of “Young people, faith, and vocations”.
Coordinator Justin Nanak invites conference pilgrims to share their performing talent in whatever genre, from music to magic; from dance to drama; from rap to rock; from comedy to classics; from singing to sports.
“As long as it fits in with the event guidelines, the stage is yours,” he said.
Performances across all age groups are encouraged and the showcase is open to individual or group performances. Original work is preferred, but it is not a criterion.
Special guests are also expected to perform.
Record a Minute of Your Proposed Routine
“Similar events have been held at other major gatherings and previous Mini World Youth Days, and on every occasion, the talent search adds a fun, inclusive highlight to the proceedings and is a useful counterpoint to the more formal and structured discussions and sessions” explains Mr Nanak.
To stand a chance to perform, contestants must record one minute of their proposed routine/act and submit it to Mr Nanak as a YouTube or video clip, for him and his team to adjudicate.
The deadline for submitting “Catholics Have Talent” entries is November 20.
While formal registration for MWYD is closed, there are, however, a few unclaimed spaces, so late registration packs are still available at R2250.
