Fonziba’s African drumming enables people of all ages to discover and enliven their innate personal creativity. Join us for an afternoon of learning and music, and get hands-on experience playing one of the 35 jembe hand or bass drums that is brought to the library for this program. She also provides an interactive display of objects used in a typical African home for cooking, eating, cleaning, washing, sitting and sleeping. This unique experiential approach gives everyone a rich and authentic taste of life in West Africa that broadens their understanding of other cultures and ways of living.

On Wednesdays, join us for a different program every week to broaden our knowledge of cultures around the world!

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
