You are here because you believe in the arts, because you believe in meaningful work, because you believe in Africa.
The 25 May Movement is a collective of artists, community organisers, social workers and cultural producers who are collaborating to lead social change in Africa. Through programming, capacity building and community-led initiatives, the organisation is tackling the United Nations’ sustainable development goals through a theory of change model that puts cultural practice and creative expression at the core.
The premise of the movement is simple: all communities around the world have imbedded in their ways of life the tools to navigate daily existence. The functions and value of these cannot be overstated; they are a participation in ‘togetherness’, a means by which knowledge can be communicated between generations and a repository of our collective experiences. They govern the decisions of individuals and of groups and inform the choices we make. They are the very essence of our lives and as such, can and must be employed to create and establish a culture of tolerance, unity and ethical intentionality.
