Phase: Ideas Phase

<b>This is a call for the local arts community to make visible in artistic form what a ‘resilient’ Dar es Salaam can look like and how communities can help to achieve this.</b><br/><br/> The Resilient Dar Mural Challenge is a challenge for graffiti artists, drawing artists, and painters in Tanzania with creative ideas to design data-driven murals that focus on the theme of increasing resilience to climate and disaster risk - elaborating on the goals of the Tanzania Urban Resilience Programme (TURP). The aim is to have artists creatively use existing data from all three pillars of TURP intervention (risk identification, risk reduction and disaster preparedness & emergency management) to bring to life ways that we can all work together to help shape Dar es Salaam as a resilient city - beginning at the community level. <br/><br/> <b>Why it should Matter to Apply</b><br/><br/> Tanzania, like all other countries, is not immune to natural hazards, which have the potential to disrupt communities, cause casualties, and damage or destroy economic assets. Examples of such hazards include flooding, drought, cyclones, earthquakes, landslides, tsunami, beach erosion, infestations, and epidemics. <br/><br/><br/> Further increasing the country’s vulnerability to climate risk, Tanzania is also experiencing rapid urbanization, with a population of approximately 52,554,628 million, 1/10th of which calls the city of Dar es Salaam ‘home’. Urban resilience is thus crucial in monitoring, facilitating, maintaining, and recovering a virtual cycle between ecosystem services and human wellbeing. <br/><br/> In April 2018, the city of Dar es Salaam experienced extensive flooding that resulted in 14 casualties and the destruction of basic infrastructure, including roads, water, and sewage systems. <br/><br/> In order for such situations to be avoided in the future, multi-sectoral efforts are being implemented - but action begins at the community level. As agents of cultural shift, art and artists raise the alarm and have the power to further inform and engage the community on this subject. The Resilient Dar Mural Challenge is a great chance for Tanzania’s creative minds to come up with ideas that will guide the community towards making their city more resilient. <br/><br/><b>General Eligibility Criteria to Apply for the Dar Mural Challenge </b><br/><br/> <ul> <li>Applicant must be a good drawing artist</li> <li>Applicant must be a citizen of Tanzania.</li> <li>Applicant must be innovative, creative and self-motivated.</li> <li>Applicants must be ready to implement their designs or scale-up current projects to materialization.</li> <li>Applicants must be willing to attend the workshops if his/her application will be selected , and fully participate in the next stage until final.</li> <li>Applicant’s ideas must focus on urban resilience for Dar es Salaam city (Msimbazi area). </li></ul> <br/><b>Criteria for Selecting Winners</b><br/><br/> <ul><li>Artist work must align with the topic provided (urban resilience for Dar es Salaam)</li> <li>Artist work should carry a strong message with a call to action.</li> <li>Artist work must be creative, with innovative design clarity.</li> <li>Artist work must be original.</li> </ul><br/><br/><br/>
