Travel Writing Workshop (presented by Pink Pangea)
This workshop is designed for both frequent travelers as well as those of us who don’t always get to hop on a plane, but absolutely love to explore. Writing creates a space for us to process our experiences in a way that we hadn’t before, and uncover new insights. We’ll read compelling pieces, enjoy interactive activities, and process our own experiences on paper.

In this workshop we will:
-Understand our urge to write
-Explore some of the best travel writing
-Uncover insights from our past travel experiences
-Capture the sights, tastes, smells, and sounds that stimulate us
-Feel the impact our words have on other travelers

After completing workshops, participants have written for major publications, launched their own blogs, or continued to write in their journals. Others have simply enjoyed trying something new. At the end of the session there will be an opportunity to learn about how to get your travel writing published.

Lunch (w/ a performance from Curious on Tanzania)
Curious On Tanzanian Music! Enjoy a live Tanzanian performance @NYTravFest 2015

We are excited to introduce Tina Kakolaki, an artist, born and raised in Tanzania.

She moved to USA to pursue collage education. Leaving behind her passion for singing for many years to fulfill the American dream. As life went on she noticed, she was living in a world where technology was gaining momentum while culture was getting less and less attention. As she searched to find a way to hold on to her culture, she got inspired to follow her lifelong passion for music. With her music, she looks to keep the African cultural values alive through her music, drumming, storytelling and dance. She also sings in three languages including her tribal language, Kihaya, Tanzanian’s national language, Kiswahili and English. She looks to share her passion for African music and rhythm as a way to maintain her roots.

About us: Curious on Tanzania is a social traveling platform that offers unique Tanzanian experience within and outside the country. Find out more by visiting curiousontanzania.com

Benefits of working with others include:
- Learning about existing media collaborations
