Zinduka: The East African Festival

Our goal is to gather thousands of East Africans every year drawn from the grassroots social movements, CSOs, artists, policy makers and media into a space for intense reflection, celebrations and contribution to the emerging new Africa. We strengthen bonds of solidarity between East Africans and catalyze our engagement in the East African integration.

Zinduka East Africa Academy

The Zinduka Festival Academy formerly the Arusha Academy is an annual platform that acts as a reference point for interrogating ideas around regional integration and best practice with respect to rights; with a particular emphasis on the active pursuit of second-generation rights.

Thematic Convenings

Zinduka Festival Convenings are self-organized spaces where people and organizations from the East African Region host various convenings on diverse topics. The convenings take place at an open air space mostly in tents with a capacity of 50 to 100 persons.

Side Events

The festival is anchored on arts, culture, technology and conversations offering participants opportunity to engage on multiple platforms. On the margins of the main events, participants engage in solidarity marches, music, cultural expressions, sports, film screenings and bonfires.
