Zimfest 2015 Teacher and Performer Applications

Dear Zimfest Community,

It’s time to submit your Zimfest 2015 applications online! Teacher and performer applications are available now at https://2015.zimfest.org. The due date for applications is March 15, 2015.

Please be advised that we are using Google accounts for login this year; When you log in, you will be prompted to sign in using a Google account, and we recommend that you use a Gmail account if you already have one.  Alternatively, you may register a Google account for an email address of your choice (including third-party providers such as Yahoo) by following these directions: https://accounts.google.com/SignUp.

Be sure to mark your calendars for the 2015 Zimbabwean Music Festival August 13-16th at Western Oregon University in Monmouth, OR. The theme for this year’s festival is “Enduring Rhythms ~ Gathering in Harmony.”

If you are artistically inclined, there is still time to submit designs and artwork to be used on Zimfest promotional material. For more info, see our previous blog post Zimfest 2015 Theme and Call for Artwork Submissions.

Please remember that the festival needs your volunteer help! If you are interested in volunteering, please write

Best regards on behalf of the 2015 Organizing Committee,
Claire Jones
2015 Zimfest Coordinator

    I don’t care for gmail, rarely use google as a search engine. i hope you won’t require me to read this gmail login account to get zimfest info…i’ll miss a lot.

    You do not need to have a Gmail account to log in to the Zimfest 2015 website, or apply to teach or perform. You do, however, need a Google account, which requires you to register an existing email address of your choice, and set a password. This can be done at https://accounts.google.com/SignUp, by selecting “I prefer to use my current email address.”

    There are a number of reasons that we decided to change the login system this year, but the primary benefits include improved security (Zimfest does not directly handle your username or password), and better usability (we can rely on the pre-build registration, password reset, etc. systems provided by Google).

    Please let us know if you have any trouble, and we would be happy to help.
