Travel and accommodation
The 2023 AAAT is hosted by The Creative Education Foundation of Zanzibar.
The Creative Education Foundation has established a Waldorf school in Zanzibar to provide children living in poverty access to quality experiential education in order to build healthy communities and change life outcomes. They are building the capacities of local teachers by providing training opportunities in accordance with the philosophies of Rudolf Steiner.
The conference will be hosted at the beautiful Assalam Community Foundation by the ocean in Kizimkazi, Zanzibar.
Accommodation is dorm style.
Individual accommodation can be organised at a nearby hostel or hotel at your own expense.
However we recommend an immersive experience for attendees to gain the most take aways from the conference.
Please note that Assalam Community Foundation honors the traditions of the Zanzibar community and requests conservative dress at all times. For women this translates to shoulder to knee coverage, and for men always wearing a shirt in public. Assalam is an alcohol free site and alcohol is not permitted in public areas.
We will be organizing group transport at set times, to be advised, from Stone Town Ferry Port and Abeid Amaani Karume Airport to Kizimkazi
