onedotzero's award-winning educational programme returned as part of the British council's 'connect za' programme during the A maze festival in Johannesburg.


“onedotzero delivered a highly successful cascade programme in South Africa in September 2014 as part of the British Council Connect ZA. They demonstrated an understanding of how to effectively engage young people in an educational programme that pushed participants to investigate new ways of working, including collaboratively, digitally and across creative disciplines. We were impressed by the progress participants made within the space of a week and we could see the tangible benefits of cascade.”
