We started the SO((U))L Hq and Di Institute for Social Leadership on faith, love and hope. Both spaces are an experiment in building community around music art culture, self-discovery and learning. Our vision is to create and sustain these spaces all over Jamaica and all over the world.
We believe in the value of what we have created and we know we need a community who knows and also believes in the passion and vision that lives in our work to support us.
The SO((U))L HQ
SO((U))L creates alternative community spaces for discussion exploration and discovery of the arts, culture, spirituality,music, creativity and the promotion of social justice, equality, self-reliance. The first of these spaces is located in Stony Hill, St.Andrew Jamaica and is called the Hq was started in 2011.
Some of the things we do include:
(ZANJRADIO broadcasts live on Weekends)
The Hq has also been developing into a "residential" incubator for artists. Individuals visiting the Hq on a Friday night may stay the entire weekend. Working out project ideas, experimenting, or just building friendships and relationships. This is a very important aspect to the orginial vision of SO((U))L and we see how this community of artist and individuals can learn to find support for their work.
To support our operations, we provide short-term rentals at the HQ on Airbnb
Di Institute for Social Leadership
Di Institute for Social Leadership(ISL) was started in December 2014 in Kingston Jamaica. It provides learning opportunities and social support services for Youth and Adults. Social Leadership is an idea that we have been exploring from our work with the SO((U))L HQ. Social Leadership means accepting responsibility as individuals for actively creating communities which support the growth and development for all its members.
Our Programmes include:
Currently we operate a youth programme. 15-20 children between the ages of 6-16 come to Di Institute, Monday to Saturday. We host three classes; Drama/Theatre Arts, Reading and Technology.
Help us keep going :)
