ZIMBABWE: Work at the SHOKO Int'l Hip Hop Festival

Magamba Cultural Activist Network is the country’s leading spoken word and hip hop organization and has been pioneering in its involvement in the spoken word movement in Zimbabwe. Comrade Fatso, co-founder of Magamba, started the House of Hunger Poetry Slam, Zimbabwe’s first poetry slam that continues to this day. Upon its own formation Magamba then launched the monthly Mashoko event, Zimbabwe’s leading spoken word and hip hop event, which sees over 200 youth attending each event. Volunteer for this organization but cover your own costs to Zimbabwe plus room and board.
