ITLP forged a partnership with the Fine & Performing Arts Department at the University of Dar es Salaam to deepen and expand the ITLP mission in Tanzania.
The University agreed to provide Tanzanian theatre artists to work alongside US theatre artists in the ITLP 2008 Summer program to build local capacity to continue to use theatre in education.
That summer, five Tanzanian theatre arts students from U of Dar were selected to work with the US teaching artists.
