Join this ambitious art for change campaign and play your part in one of the largest art installations seen in Africa.
Tuje Pamoja – Let us come together to inspire change!
We want to give art a voice in creating and inspiring change.
In collaboration with artists, environmentalists, global thinkers, celebrities, Tanzanian communities and change-makers, the Kilimanjaro Project will use Mount Kilimanjaro and vibrant colourful African Khanga fabric to send out a global call to action inspired by six sustainable futures and climate change messages.
We are going to tell it on the mountain laying six beautiful khanga fabric designs up the six hiking trails culminating on the summit of the Old Woman herself, Mount Kilimanjaro.
The time to act is now!
Tuje Pamoja – let us come together!
WATCH the video for an explanation of the project.
TUJE PAMOJA Khanga – Khangas are a vibrant African cloth that have as many uses as they have messages.
They carry these messages; blessings to neighbours or warnings to one’s foes, they carry messages of love and messages to compel. They are a subtle voice for the freedom of expression, willing and able messengers.
“Khangas are symbolic. They tell our truths. They communicate our pain, our joy and our fiesty play of words. Khangas are the epitome of intended puns. They rock us to sleep, dry our tears when we weep and let in a cool breeze on a hot summer day. Khangas reveal our beauty and our majesty, and they will soon lay on paths towards the Kilimanjaro. Like the Kilimanjaro, Khangas brings us together. Our fate is bound by our actions to act against climate change. Let us come together Tuje pamoja “.
