Transcripts and workshop notes from Zanzibar Arts for Children's Eyesight (ZANZI-ACE) to build the Theory of Change model and co-create arts-based eye education



A 2½-day stakeholders workshop to develop the ZANZI-ACE intervention that aimed at utilising music performances in eye health education to improve child eye health service uptake in Zanzibar was conducted. Subsequently, a Zanzibar-wide music competition was launched to encourage local participation and followed by a judging session to select three pieces as the ZANZI-ACE intervention materials. These outcomes included i) mutli-perspectival, informed understandings of, and proposed solutions to address, socio-cultural barriers to uptake of child eye health services, ii) determination of stakeholders' preferences for the content of eye health messages and the arts-based form for the eye health education strategy, and iii) development of the intervention and implementation strategy, underpinned by an agreed Theory of Change.
