Donate directly to on the ground expenses in Zimbabwe

  Tax deductible donation for Zimagine That! expenses in the United States.




Imagine That teachers, Lola and John come from Bulawayo.

Zimagine That! is going to take place at the Mzilikazi Youth Center. This was where John learned to play music and perform. This center kickstarted his International touring life. Our plan is to help to restore the building which has become a little derelict over time and to use the Imagine That art classes to paint murals and beautify the space. The camp will take place in the space and children from the Mzilikazi area will be invited to participate for free, with lunches provided.

This project will involve exciting collaboration with Zimbabwean artists and teachers as we learn from them and they learn about our Imagine That framework. We intend to also use art classes to work with kids to design and produce art pieces that they might make or sell via us when we return to Eugene.

 
A small crew will be visiting Bulawayo in December of 2019 to make initial contacts and set the project in motion on the ground there.

In December 2020 (Summer in Bulawayo), John, Lola, Scotty, Mari, Nate, Kellee, Robb, Rimona,Jen, Nina and Andy will be landing in Bulawayo ready to roll into full motion Zimagine That!.

In the meantime we are focusing on fundraising and taking Ndebele classes with Ratie Dangarembwa in 2019.
