Music and Global Social Justice
Old St. Michaels Church, Corban Arts Estate, Henderson
Friday 4th May at 7 pm - 10 pm

A unique opportunity to explore conversations on global justice, especially related to gender, in a stunningly beautiful setting complete with some awesome relaxing music. 

Tony Ssembatya Kimbowa is Ugandan, currently working with UN Women in New York, primarily assessing countries' constitutions on how well they implement human, especially gender rights. He combines this with grass roots community development, establishing an educational foundation in his home country which intends to avail learning opportunities for children born and raised in abject poverty, to empower young mothers with self sustainability skills, and to tap the hidden talents of the rural youth. He is also completing a PhD focusing on citizenship and statelessness. 

Tweed are an alternative folk trio with distinctive style of catchy melodies, poly-rhythms, and tight-knit, complex vocal harmonies, reminiscent of CSN and Joni Mitchell.
