The Zamar Festival is scheduled to take place this year from 23rd May 2015 til 24th May 2015. From the organizers, we learnt that, Zamar is a Hebrew word whose literal meaning is to touch the strings or parts of a musical instrument, i.e. Play upon it; to make music, accompanied by the voice; hence to celebrate in song and music — give praise, sing forth praises, psalms.
The festival which begun five years back as an annual Talent expo to showcase young people’s talent, skill and God-given abilities aims at; a) encouraging other young people to do the same and b) exposing the talents and skills as an opportunity to make money.
This year they intend to focus on businesses, organizations, community initiatives and projects that are run by youth. This is with the aim of:
– Bringing exposure to these initiatives with the hope of finding partnerships and encouraging them to continue in their work
– Encouraging other like minded young people who have not yet started any like program to do so with the aim of benefiting themselves and society as well.
In addition to the above, there will be other activities. These include;
- Traditional games
- Fashion showcase
- An Acoustic night
- Free Photoshoot
- And many more…
