SASA is a confluence of creative artists who seek to make positive impact with their gifts and talents. SASA is an acronym that stands for “Speakers And Singers Association”
SASA was started in August, 2011. Some months after the group was formed, we discovered that SASA meant ‘now’ in Swahili. This sensitized awareness in us to respond to the scripture in Ephesians 5:18-“redeeming the time, because the days are evil”
We seek to create a platform for the various artists to fulfill their purpose in life. A scripture that inspires us is found in Acts 13:36 “… when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation…” This scripture inspires us to be diligent in using our God-given gifts and talents in a timely manner to positively impact the generation God has placed us in.
The programs we hold are basically geared towards touching lives and drawing them closer to God. Artistically, we seek to merge the various art forms. Our core program named Poetry in Ambiance merges the two art forms of music and poetry by placing music in the background to create an ambiance (musical environment) as poetry rides in the foreground. The program is often interspersed with singing and dancing and the setting is enhanced by placing paintings and sketches at vantage positions.
One other program we have is Writers Block Unlocked – a time when we invite writers from all around and provide them with prompts ranging from pictures, music and even other writings. At the end, the various artists share what they wrote through the session.
