We, in Unguja and Pemba – the islands of Zanzibar - are surrounded by water – and the monsoons bring us fresh water every season. We love our water - but we have our fair share of water problems too!
 
For March 2015 we are planning a Creative Festival of Water– to celebrate the water we have in all shapes and forms, what we'd like and what people are doing across the islands to achieve this.
 
Through music, performance, visual arts and media – we aim to bring communities together to have fun, to explore and to celebrate creativity and artistic talent. We'd like the festival will be a true sharing and reflection of the talent and entreprenteurship living on the islands, together with other creative people from across the globe.   
 
Who are we?
The Zanzibar team currently consists of a group of people both from within the community of Matemwe and from those who have made Matemwe their home – together with Sustainable East Africa (SEA).
 
Who do we need with what skills?
Over the next few months – up until the April event – to assist in the co-ordination and the marketing of the Festival
We need people with the following skills:
Festival Administration and co-ordination;

Marketing skills;
