Community Arts Program

counter and intern in community art programs AfricaThe Community Art Program Tanzania focuses on developing and nurture the art & music & design activities in local government levels in Tanzania. It is based on the fact that the Tanzanian schools commonly do not teach arts and music due to the lack of capacities as teachers and teaching materials. Most of the artistic activities are then based on tribal-based traditions in family level and individual talents.

Arts & Music and Design is the 3rd largest business sector in the EU. It is base on many business activities as developing computer games among all products that need designs etc. In Tanzania, the importance of this sector is completely neglected. Art is also an important part of the National Identity and it is part of the daily world of the common people. It can also be used as a therapeutic tool among other solutions.

Art in Tanzania is promoting the people in Arts & Crafts production as part of it's Fair Trade program.

The Community Arts Program is also part of the UNICEF Children Agenda approach. All the issues are then documented in Social Media. We are also producing short documentaries and using community photographing to highlight social issues through artistic media.
