Making a Global Impact with ZIVA

The Zimbabwe Institute of Vigital Arts or ZIVA was founded by Saki Mafundikwa in 1999 as the first school of digital design, new media and visual communication in Zimbabwe. Mafundikwa, a typographer, graphic designer, photographer, filmmaker, author of Afrikan Alphabets (the first book on Afrikan typography), and recent TED Talks speaker; after a long sojourn through the world of design and media in the United States decided that the power of graphic and visual communication should be returned to the source where it all started, Zimbabwe. He returned to his country and amidst social and political upheavals managed to found and recently expand ZIVA into a program that galvanizes intrinsic values found in design.

Since its birth ZIVA has produced students such as (among many others)Nontsikelelo Mutiti who received her MFA in design from Yale University, Maxine Chikumbo who now attends Cooper Union, and Christopher Masonga who in 2003 was awarded the Type Director's Club of New York City's Scholarship award. ZIVA is sending a new generation of designers and artists onto an arts scene that is in the midst of a 4th generation pop art movement.

Still, dreams accomplished and institutions established require continued support. The goal is $100,000. The funds will be allocated to changing HP laptops to powerful desktop computers, changing Photoshop CS2 to the most current Adobe Suite software, updating technical design manuals to the latest on the market, to expanding faculty, and last but definitely not least, to providing full scholarships to deserving and talented young designers.


There are two options below to help us reach our goal before June 1. You can share our campaign through crowdrise or you can donate at indiegogo. See the links below and remember, we can only rise with you!
