We are really excited about the upcoming event on Friday 8th August that Ndoto Afrika is holding in our studio.
Ndoto Afrika is a non profit organisation based here in Australia supporting sustainable living projects in rural African communities. The projects are carried out through partnerships with African non profit organisations that are founded and run by African people. Working in such a way creates a sense of ability, ownership and engagement and allows sustainable growth in these communities.
The initial project comes from a need for toilets for the local schools and community in Chamwino, Tanzania. Imagine sending your children to school where there were no toilets for the children to use! A big part of the project will include education about sanitation and hygiene as well an ongoing maintenance plan.
The event will be an amazing mix of visual and performance art with pieces coming from both Australian and International artists. We will have dance performance, African drumming, African food, drinks and an art show and auction as well as a great group of people coming together to support the project and have a great time. This is an open invitation and free entry event. We welcome you to come along and bring friends!
