Want to be part of a dynamic, hard-working team making a difference in Malawi? The Art and Global Health Center Africa (ArtGlo) is looking for a highly motivated individual to serve as an Umunthu Programme Intern. The experience will be hands-on, in a flexible, supportive and fast-paced multicultural and collaborative environment. At ArtGlo, the intern will develop skills in workshop organisation and facilitation, workshop documentation and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E).
At ArtGlo, we harness the power of the arts to nurture creative leadership, and ignite bold conversations and actions. We envision a world where communities are healthy, open, and active, and people are free to be who they are.
ArtGlo programmes nurture healthy, empowered, open and active communities in Malawi. Three programmes form the core of our work: MAKE ART FOR SUSTAINABLE ACTION (MASA) uses participatory arts to inspire bold conversations and actions for some of society’s biggest challenges, such as HIV, SRHR and gender-based violence. STUDENTS WITH DREAMS is a youth leadership programme that provides college students with training, mentorship and seed funding to develop innovative projects that address pressing social issues. UMUNTHU uses the arts to catalyse reflection and discussion, providing a platform to address issues of stigma and discrimination, through the lens of “Umunthu,” a Pan-African philosophical concept of humanity often defined in the phrase, “I am because we are.”
