Welcome to

SMK Events

My vision is a world that is conspiring for good at the right time, in the right place. Through truly great event planning and execution everyone involved from the staff to the event guests can say, ‘I’m worth it.!’ A world where everyone feels worthy is a world worth living in. Creating a little beauty and inspiration to help lift people’s spirits is a worthy adventure.

SMK productions through embracing collaborations and considering production as a lifestyle, can manage to create events that where all present mediums become a viable basis for self (brand) expression, as there is not hierarchy to any mediums involved in the production of a successful event.

SMK takes the unique position of building loyal partnerships to bring a unique touch to your events and defends this position with finesse, diligence, and teambuilding. We are 'grace under pressure'.

THE HISTORICAL CONTEXT


Characterized by expression in a wide variety of styles, Art Nouveau was aimed at modernizing design, seeking to escape the eclectic historical styles that had previously been popular. All visual art forms were pulled into creative expression. Artists drew inspiration from both organic and geometric forms, evolving elegant designs that united flowing, natural forms with more angular contours - forms resembling the stems and blossoms of plants - as well as geometric forms such as squares and rectangles.

What was pivotal and exciting about the Art Nouveau style was that it was a bold escape from the stuffy primness of the Victorian era and a breakthrough in expression and lifestyle. The Bohemians, devoted to an unconventional lifestyle, revolutionized a way of life in their practice of love, truth and beauty and formed communities in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties. Involving musical, artistic, or literary pursuits, they are seekers, adventurers, dreamers. One of the secret doors of the Art Nouveau movement was that it launched modernism, allowing artists to try mediums never before considered worthy. Artistic mediums exploded in textiles, decorative arts, inventions, fashion and architecture. Simultaneously, The Moulin Rouge evolved as a revolutionary rave scene where the well-heeled went to explore self-expression beyond the conventional principles of the past.

    R. Abusbaitan - Hyatt Regency Dar es Salaam for Rouge launch, December 2012
  • I am proud to return to Dar es Salaam to once again meet my Tanzanian friends and musical partners. Promoting cultural exchange and mutual understanding through creative collaboration is essential to strengthening the partnership of American musicians like myself, Delmar Brown, and Tony Bunn with Tanzanian artists. We thank the U.S. Department of State's Arts Envoys Program, the Alliance Française, The Goethe-Institut, and Triniti, for their support this year. I'd also like to personally thank Sabrina Millet-Kanabar and her team for their highly effective efforts in coordinating the logistics of this project.

Sabrina

In, 2007 I was given the opportunity to manage and develop a new entertainment company in town, and I jumped at the chance to turn a dream into my day-to-day job.

A year later, I realized I wanted to create my own events from the vision right through to the living breathing creation. I had a terrific training ground with the events company I was working for, and had grown personally and professionally, but it was time for me to fly with my own wings. I just knew it was the only way I was going be able to realize the fantastic events I was envisioning. And that’s how French Kiss was born.
