Savanna Trust is an arts organisation that specializes in the use of theatre for social change, theatre production, promotion and development. Founded in August 2006, the organisation implements three distinct programmes that focus on community engagement, arts education & production and festivals.
The community engagement programme uses theatre and other arts based activities for awareness raising and initiating dialogue on the socio-political and economic issues that affect marginalised communities daily.
In arts education, Savanna Trust facilitates artistic and management training of theatre and other arts practitioners in Zimbabwe and elsewhere. Currently the organisation through workshops, mentorship, collaboration and exchange runs training programmes in acting, playmaking, theatre directing, scriptwriting and arts management. It also produces plays for public consumption and touring.
Annually Savanna Trust hosts the Protest Arts International Festival.
