The first edition of the ”SAY NO TO DRUGS” Campaign under the canopy of The Beri Arts Association which was hosted by Mr Tim was such a great and successful Seminar which trained artists as peer educators on how to use Arts to fight against #drugabuse and help in the sustainable development of their community. The association is overwelmed and happy tremendously to thank everyone who supported the campaign to see the seminar register the great success it did.
A lot was learned as far as #drugabuse is concern. From it’s consumption to the effects and the possible solutions. This presentation was done by Dr. Gilbert Fonmunde (Proprietor of Evergreen Clinic Rail Bonaberi Douala). He gave recent statistics which showed that the consumption of drugs is increasing especially with the youths from ages 20 to 35 years of age. Thus, we need to join efforts to see that we all fight at our different capacities to mitigate it’s effects in our communities. It is on this note that Beri Arts Association organized this seminar so that artists in their various domains will understand and be able to use their arts to fight against Drug Abuse for the sustainable development of our communities.
A lot was also learned on Marketing Purposeful Art which was presented by Madam Veveian Tofoin Bih (a marketer, coach and cooperate executive working with Prudential Beneficial Life Insurance). Marketing strategies were learned alongside aspects like pitching, communication, resilience, branding, quality and more which will help content creators to be able to take their arts to the right market.
Mr-Tim Obed (Humanitarian) gave a summary of Arts in Essence which concluded the first segment of the Seminar. The seminar was a satisfactory one as everything went as planned as participants went back very satisfied with a renewal of mind and a new perspective in Art and community development.
