This past Monday UCT graduates , Golden key member Matthew Westaway and Gustaf swart  held a workshop on connecting art and science using 3D technology at Norma Road primary school in Athlone. Being the anniversary week of the passing of Nelson Mandela it was only appropriate to use Nelson Mandela as a medium to illustrate this connection.   

The workshop begun with sculpturer Right Mukore from Montebello Design Centre teaching the learners how to sculpt a bust of Nelson Mandela from wood. Gustaf and Matthew then demonstrated to the learners how to create a 3D model of the bust using photographs (structure from motion) and how to get a 2D line drawing (edge detection) from a photograph of the bust. 

The learners then got involved by each taking turns on a smart phone to take a photograph of the bust and generate an edge drawing of the photograph using a mobile application Gustaf and Matthew had written. Each learner then printed this edge drawing and using their artistic expression created their own image of Nelson Mandela .

To further the continuing of the legacy of Madiba, the learners learnt a new skill-set which will make them more entrepreneurial and keep them up to date with the changing technological environment.

Brad Rainey, CEO of Golden Key announced:

We are excited to announce that Charlene Gunter will be joining the Golden Key Atlanta international office staff on 16 June as our new Director of Corporate Relations! Charlene has been the Director of South Africa for 7 years and has been successful and instrumental in managing the GK South African office.   During her time as Director, Charlene was pivotal in creating more than 21 corporate relationships and 15 recruiting partnerships that brought benefits to her members as well as incredible financial support to Golden Key. South African membership grew under her leadership as she added 6 new GK chapters during her tenure as well.

As the Director of Corporate Relations, Charlene will be responsible for all corporate partnerships, sponsorships, member benefits and most importantly, creating a new GK Job and Internship Program.  The Job and Internship Program will not only provide tangible  benefits to our GK membership but also will serve as a new revenue stream for the Society.  “I am so excited to be joining the GKHQ staff and look forward to bringing many new corporate relationships and tangible jobs and internships to our members worldwide,” said Charlene.

We are also thrilled to welcome Dorette Parsons as the new Director of South Africa.  Dorette comes to Golden Key with extensive experience in business, finance and exemplary involvement in non-profit and education. She holds a master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management and will complete an Advanced Program in Taxation at the end of 2014.  Dorette’s overall business background and her skills in strategic planning and management will help to continue the positive growth with GK South African chapters.  “I am honored to be the new Director of South Africa and look forward to continuing the positive growth and image of Golden Key throughout South Africa,” said Dorette.

Please join me in congratulating them both and welcoming Charlene to the Atlanta office.
