ZAMANI SPONSORSHIP & CO-OPERATION

The Zamani Project is a non-profit initiative that works closely with academic and cultural institutions globally. The project’s operating costs (field work expenses not included) are presently funded through the independent “Zamani African Cultural Heritage Sites Trust", which was established by the Philanthropist and UCT Alumni Duncan Saville.

Funds for field work at individual sites have to be found on an ad hoc basis. To date, UNESCO, the World Monuments Fund, the Getty Conservation Institute, the German Archaeological Institute, the Gerda Henkel Foundation as well as individual researchers and academics have provided funds for a number of projects. Support is also provided by the german instrument manufacturer Z+F (Zoller und Froehlich) and the software company Capturing Reality.

Financial support
Financial support for the Zamani Project is needed to carry out further urgent documentation projects and any contribution towards the project would be greatly appreciated. The spatial data acquired by the Zamani Project will be available upon request for research and/or education as well as restoration and conservation projects, provided the use is non-commercial. 

HOW TO SPONSOR ZAMANI

There are a number of ways to work with Zamani

1

SPONSOR A SITE

If there are specific sites important to your organisation or if there is a general intention to support a relevant site or a site under threat, Zamani can provide a package project to document the site and provide the data and support material required to record the site for the future. The processed data of that site will be recognised and labeled with your Sponsorship.

2

SPONSOR A COLLECTION

Zamani has a number of collections of sites that together tell a story or can be viewed as a single gallery experience. Two such collections are the “Atlantic Slave Trade” collection (www.zamaniproject.org/slavetrade) and the “Swahili Coast” collection (www.zamaniproject.org/swahili), both would benefit from the addition of further sites. Some start-up data for additional sets have already been collected, examples for these are the “Monuments of Petra”, “African Rockart”, “Adobe Mosques and buildings in the Sahel”, “Churches of Ethiopia” and the “Pyramids of Sudan”.

Possible new collections could be “Monuments of the African Iron Age”, “Mosques of the East African Coast” or Britsh or German Colonial Buildings”. Such collections can be sponsored along with the lecture materials on each, that provide for a powerful viewer experience in a corporate, arts or cultural setting.
