The Jahazi Journal

Encouraging dialogue, shared experiences and policy direction for the creative and cultural sector in East Africa


We embrace culture as a dynamic, inalienable driver of identity, community and development


We believe in the intrinsic human ability to make, for its own sake, but also for gain and the importance of the artist.


We cherish the ephemeral yet eternal, transcendence of the performative arts and their role in society.
