What we do

Selam Ethiopia implements events and education programs through music, film, media and circus in five different regions in Ethiopia (Addis Ababa, Oromia, Tigray, Amhara & SNNPR)

Catalyzing Sectoral Transformation

Through advocacy and engagement of relevant stakeholders, where we organized hundreds of networking and advocacy platforms – dubbed Selam Cultural Forum – a series of continual events for the last 10 years, with each edition focusing on a specific thematic topic in culture.

Brokering Knowledge

Mainly through organizing music festivals in Ethiopia, Sweden, Cuba, and other countries while providing opportunities and exposure to emerging artists and performers – our flagship annual events in ethiopia are the Selam Festival Addis and Addis Jazz Festival.

Facilitating Cross-Cultural Exchange

Via capacity building trainings by highly qualified international professionals to upgrade skills of Ethiopian musicians, sound engineers, artists, film makers, and professionals to develop the nation’s fledgling cultural infrastructure and creative economy.
