DAR PHOTO PROJECT THIS WEEK! EXHIBITION AND ARTIST ENCOUNTER ON FRIDAY EVENING


Hello Art Lovers!
This week, the Haba na Haba dance workshops continue as the dancers and choreographers prepare pieces for the festival taking place at Nafasi on 26 and 27 May. On the 23rd of May from 3pm, we will host an art reception during Nordic Week. Come tour the Nafasi studios and enjoy live acoustic music!

This is also the week of the DAR PHOTO PROJECT 2017, a collaboration between Nafasi and the Spanish Embassy to bring award-winning contemporary photographer Lurdes Basolí to Dar to lead a one-week intensive workshop on documentary photography. On Friday, there will be an opening of two simultaneous exhibitions -- Lurdes's "My Danube" and the "Dar Photo Project" exhibition with work by Tanzanian photographers.

We hope you will join us!
