Stars of Dar on show at Slipway, 14 February - 14 March

After its first presentation in October 2011, the exhibition will now be presented on the well visited Msasani Slipway in Dar es Salaam.

The exhibition Stars of Dar light-footedly introduces you to the most interesting public spaces and buildings of Dar es Salaam. It tells the visitor about their history but most important: what we can learn from them if we think about the future of our beloved city, according to Mustafa Hassanali, Mbaraka Igangula, Mrisho Mpoto, Njenje Band and other people in Dar’s society. During a workshop, freshly graduated Ardhi University (ARU) students went out to interview them and further conducted 3 short films with interviews at Kariakoo, Posta and Mwenge: what do the users think is great about these places, and what can be improved? The exhibition will be opened by Dr. Livin Mosha, Dean of the School of Architecture and Design (SADE) of the Ardhi University. Prior to that, a short film will be shown, capturing the project and the reactions of the guest visiting the Stars of Dar exhibition in October 2011. You are most welcomed to join the opening on 14 February at 18:30 hours at the exhibition venue at the Slipway.
