Ajabu Ajabu

Founding member of Ajabu Ajabu, Jesse Gerard Mpango is a storyteller from Kasulu, Tanzania. Ajabu Ajabu is a multimedia curatorial collective based in Dar Es Salaam. The collective employs participatory, open-ended approaches in its programming and events as a way of exploring de-centralised and communal forms of presentation, production and preservation of audio-visual work in Tanzania. Recurrent within Jesse's work is the capacity for participatory rituals of imagining to unsettle and dislocate dominant narratives and extractive power structures.
