“It is not too late to pursue your dream or what you are passionate about…” These are encouraging words from Mrs. Elimani Pallangyo who was a participant in the Creative Media Class of Feb 2015. In the last seven months we have trained 35 participants majority coming from Tanzania in different sectors.
Mrs. Pallanyo who is in her 50’s runs a cultural centre called ee-yeiyo museum and cultural tours which promote and preserve the Meru culture. Her main goal of joining the master classes at Moving Tanzania was to acquire skills that would help her in producing quality digital products at the centre. In the ee-yeiyo centre they have recorded a collection of Meru songs and dances in the form of audio and visuals distributed on CDs and DVDs. The vision of the centre is to digitize traditional songs, music, dances, folklores, sayings and riddles from the Meru culture. This is a great idea which should be emulated by all African and other cultures around the World to avert the threats of losing their roots for the next generations to come.
Tour with Moving Tanzania
As a practice at Moving Tanzania within the training the participants get a chance to tour either a cultural or a creative space within Arusha. This time it was a great honour for all of us to be hosted by Mrs. Pallanyo at the ee-yeiyo cultural centre.
We wish all the participants a creative journey in their pursuit in producing quality products of any format and we look forward to welcome you all again at the next classes in music and sound in film and creative entrepreneurship scheduled for March & May 2015 as follows;
- Sounds & Music in Film 9th March 2015 to 20th March 2015
- Creative Entrepreneurship 4th May 2015 to 15th May 2015.
