Selina Kibanda


“I am Selina Kibanda, a lab and research assistant at The Centre for Sound Communities. Recently, I participated in the CSC’s African workshop that was taking place around Sydney. As part of my role, I was able to film, take pictures, teach, and choreograph for others to learn. I also had the opportunity to participate in the CSC’s Tea with the Elders event, helping with the preparations, and engaging in conversation with lovely people.

I am working on a Bachelor’s degree in Community Studies at Cape Breton University. I’ve always been passionate about the arts, particularly in theatre and performance. I’ve been involved in numerous play productions, with a special focus on musicals. Being on stage has been an incredibly fulfilling experience for me, allowing me to express myself and connect uniquely with audiences. Through my roles as part of the ensemble and even taking on lead parts, I’ve learned the value of teamwork, dedication, and the joy of bringing stories to life through music and acting.

Aside from theatre, I’ve also explored other creative avenues. Dance has been another form of expression that I’ve delved into. My experience in dance has added grace and fluidity to my performances, enhancing my storytelling abilities on stage.

In addition to performing, I have a keen interest in behind-the-scenes aspects of the arts, immersing myself in photography and filming, and gaining valuable insight into the technical aspects of capturing moments and telling stories through visuals. This experience has broadened my perspective and deepened my appreciation for the creative process.”
