Came across this site via Creative Roots (a site I’ve grown to love): Dar Sketches, is a project set up by a London trained artist, Sarah Markes, who has lived in the Tanzanian city for a few years. She works to encourage the arts in Dar es Salaam, and these sketches are tied in with creative writing she’s hoping to provoke.

Fantastic stuff. For anyone who’s lived in an E. African city, these scenes will be VERY familiar indeed – and I found myself immediately whisked away to the bustle of Kampala. One to keep an eye out for, when these get published in book form.
