Welcome to the New Zanzibits Guys

We have four students from the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU), Netherlands, who will be working as volunteer teachers on the “Zanzikids” project as an alliance between Taartrovers (Netherlands) and Zanzibits (Tanzania).

The Taartrovers students will collaborate with the young people at the Zanzibits Centre for Film and Media (fifteen to twenty-three years of age). They will teach the Zanzibits students audiovisual media production, animation, and some graphic design. Together, both groups will teach and support the workshops for the children participating in the Zanzikids project.

The Zanzikids project involves making animated versions of Swahili children’s songs and stories. The finished products will be presented as part of ZIFF (Zanzibar International Film Festival).

Hope everyone enjoys the lessons!
