ALMASI EXCHANGES


Almasi Arts Alliance facilitates a number of exchanges per year that creates African and American artistic collaboration and gives African artists educational and professional opportunities in their craft. The Artistic Training Exchange is at the core of Almasi’s pillar of collaboration and principle of education. We wish to bring experts in various components of the dramatic arts from the United States to train, mentor and educate our Zimbabwean dramatic artists. Our goal is to professionalize the Zimbabwean dramatic arts sector and bring deeply needed and desired education to talented but untrained Zimbabwean artists.
