Upcoming Broadcasts

This week features the co-founders of Creative Strategies for Change, K. Salim Ajanku and Rachael Sharp, to talk with us about their work to bridge the social divides and engage communities on all sides by mobilizing arts and education for social justice. Salim, the Artistic Director for CSC, was born an artist and has nurtured his craft as a musician from a young age with apprenticeship, volunteerism, and societal awareness. His unique brand of cultural arts and education is rooted in the West African concept of Sankofa, reaching back to move forward. He specializes in promotion of awareness, sensitivity, and intercultural understanding through drum, dance, and theater education. With more than 15 years of experience, Salim has developed and implemented socially progressive arts curricula, and played pivotal roles with multiple nonprofit and for profit organizations. In his extensive trainings and travels he has studied and worked with master musicians such as Abdou Konte, Mamady Keita, Famadou Konate, Baile McKnight, Bill Caudle, and Carlos Moore. Rachael, the Executive Director of CSC, is a passionate artist, activist, and educator who works in a variety of creative mediums, specializing in popular education, applied theater, dance, and movement. She holds a Master of Arts from the Gallatin School at New York University, and has completed professional training programs with Bay Area Nonviolent Communication, Dominic Barter, and the Center for Multicultural Education and Programs at NYU, where she received the Nia award for outstanding work in the arts and social justice. Through her work, Rachael has had the opportunity to facilitate innovative social justice education and arts programs for people of all ages, as well as supporting nonprofit organizations with communications, program coordination, and general operations.
