Organized by: Danai Gurira
BENEFITING: Almasi Arts
Almasi Arts Alliance along with its sister branch in Zimbabwe Almasi Collaborative Arts, was born out of the need to bring real opportunity, education and access to the African dramatic artist. That means the actors, the writers, the directors and all the folks who make those magical things called theater, TV and film come alive.
This organization’s founders saw the burning need to bring education and opportunity to the African’s who have talent and determination in this field but no access to mentorship, training or opportunity. ALMASI aims to bridge this gap by sending Americans who are experts in these fields to teach, mentor and partner in projects in Africa with local artists and bringing Zimbabweans to America for educational and professional cultural exchanges. We also have an each one teach one philosophy so that all that is learnt is brought out to the larger community and is used as a standardized practice as we seek to help professionalize the Zimbabwean arts industry. This fundraiser’s proceeds will go directly to these artistic programs and as a result to the Africans who strive to have their stories, their voices, reach the world.
