1. You’re invited to the Nile.
The Nile Project is a cross-cultural initiative designed to foster community throughout the longest river in the world.
The creators turned to Kickstarter to raise funds for a pilot project, which will bring together participants from all seven countries that share the river to collaborate at a five-day gathering and share music with one another and the world.
After successfully funding the project, the duo has just announced details of the inaugural events and an open call for participants. Entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, engineers, documentarians, community organizers, and more are encouraged to apply to join in the first Nile Workshop, which will be held in January in Aswan, Egypt.
