The journey begins on January 10 You can join for a week or the full journey The journey Ends on February 16
◢◢◢ A Radical Act of Co-creation ◣◣◣
The Pamoja Odyssey is a series of creative sailing experiences on board the Musafir, bringing together filmmakers, designers, artists, educators, and community Organiser to build bridges and share cultures.
Along our journey, as Musafiri, we will engage with our distant relatives in small coastal communities to exchange in perspectives, transfer of ideas and sharing of knowledge.
The typical week onboard starts with a couple of days of sailing to our destination. Once landed, we split into teams and set to explore the island. One team will go and meet with the elders of the visited distant relatives, another will recognise the area and find the best spots for photography and fire camp, another will prepare the Musafir for a long stay on land, … By the campfire, we exchange our findings and start collecting the stories of the place. The following days are dedicated to connecting with the land and people via exchange of skills and games. The last night on the island holds the Pamoja film festival and other celebrations co-created together.
◢◢◢ The Most Sustainable Journey ◣◣◣
Musafir is the largest show and the only engine-less boat in the Indian Ocean.
It uses wind and solar energy and we catch our food, which means that our journey is carbon- and emission-free.
This traditional 70-foot East African dhow was built over the last 7 years, brought a community together and inspired countless impact projects in the region. To support this community, we are designing its first international journey, the Pamoja Odyssey, sailing between Kenya and Tanzania.
◢◢◢ What will you bring to the Odyssey? ◣◣◣
Only 35 Musafiri can join each leg, including our crew.
