Support the LAB: Transformational Leadership and Pan-Africanism in Zanzibar
the LAB Community is a group of artists, development practitioners and scholars whose objective is to engage in education for liberation, art and performance to promote holistic development.
Each year, some of the most captivating and cutting-edge cinema from Africa and beyond is screened in venues across Zanzibar during the Zanzibar International Film Festival (ZIFF). ZIFF is a truly local festival with international reach and influence with exhibitions, workshops, and cultural tours that take participants to the heart of the community complement films for an integrated experience.
On July 21-23 2015, the LAB Community in collaboration with ZIFF will host a three-day workshop using the principles of transformational leadership, Pan-Africanism, and mindfulness to empower and engage youth at ZIFF in inclusive action grounded in the principles and values of equality, justice, caring, acceptance, non-violence, sustainability and cooperation.
By providing the opportunity for youth to familiarize themselves with influential Pan-African leaders and then harnessing their ability to embody and express ideals through dance and visual art, we hope to create the future of Pan-Africanism right here and now.
But we need your help. Our team of committed artists, development practitioners and scholars must make their way to Zanzibar from around the globe to share their gifts with this community. RocketHub is a great place for innovative thinkers to make their projects a reality, and all the money raised here will go to costs such as flights, accommodation, art supplies, and speakers’ honorarium.
As a thank you for your support, we have some great goods lined up so that you can be part of this journey with us. It’s going to be a magical one, and we’re hoping you’ll come experiment with us in the LAB Community.
