ironINC in Africa was founded by Jennifer in 2009 with the belief that the arts can be a catalyst for cultural understanding and contribute to social development. Since its inception, Jennifer has worked to develop sustainable projects linking diverse communities through meaningful dialogue and creative practice. These projects are developed alongside local communities and in partnership with local professional and not for profit organizations and include professional development residencies, choreographic commissions and public health campaigns.
Now in its 9th year, ironINC in Africa has delivered 16 projects in 14 countries including the HEALS Project with ex-child soldiers in Northern Uganda, Adugna Community Dance Theatre working with professional dancers and dancers with disabilities in Ethiopia, and Sauti Afrika working with street kids in Nairobi.
