On April 7, 2016 at Espace in Manhattan, Shared Interest will honor change makers for Southern Africa at their much-anticipated anniversary gala.

Following on a thrilling 2015 gala with Gra├ža Machel, widow of Nelson Mandela, and a moving 2014 gala with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the 2016 gala promises a similar level of excitement.

Supported by luminaries such as Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover, the Shared Interest Gala will feature a 30th anniversary tribute to Artists United Against Apartheid (AUAA), which made the game-changing song, Sun City. Many of the original participants will be in attendance including Ruben Blades, Nona Hendryx, Afrika Bambaataa, Jonathan Demme, producer Arthur Baker, and others to be announced.

At this exciting evening featuring music, tributes, art and more, luminaries from around the world will come together to ensure the continuation of Shared Interest’s transformative work in South Africa and honor their very special supporters: UN Women Executive Director and former South African Deputy President, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka; and Global Impact Investing Network’s Board Chair, Antony Bugg-Levine; and Pepsi Co.

All will come together in New York on the evening of April 7, 2016 at ESPACE, in support of Shared Interest, a decades-old South Africa-focused charity lauded by Nelson Mandela for helping “us consolidate our achievement of political democracy through socioeconomic development that makes a difference in the lives of ordinary people.”
