YC - WHY SEE
YC Creative Platform is a non profit organization that is passionately committed to produce and promote local content by combining creative storytelling, cutting-edge technology, documentary filmmaking, with traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) and cultural heritage in order to foster social cohesion and promote community change and resilience.
Founded by Yara Costa, a Mozambican woman filmmaker and creative director based on the UNESCO World heritage of the Island of Mozambique, YC Creative Platform believes that Swahili maritime cultural heritage is a vital asset to build resilience in vulnerable environments.
By utilizing digital media storytelling to preserve Mozambique's unique cultural heritage and by building capacities, YC Creative Platform wants to create potential income opportunities for local communities, and to drive sustainable development and well being.
Through our projects, we want to produce creative innovative local content in a participatory, acknowledging, honoring way while pushing the agenda of traditional knowledge within the communities as a way to continue building environmental and social resilience and potentially have those non-destructive, non-polluting, regenerating traditional practices seen as ecosystem services where communities can be paid for the public service of protecting the environment.
