OUR VISION

A Inclusive Vibrant creative economy in Kenya.

  • More than 60% of the population in urban Kenya live in informal settlements often referred to as slums. The slums are characterised by dire lack of access to services – water, health, education roads, security, and electricity consigning the majority to a life with little dignity.

The slums are rich in cultural diversity with many ethnic communities living side by side, yet this rich diversity is hardly seen as a resource within policy and development practice.  The youth have immense talents and have taken up art in its diverse forms as a means of expression and livelihood.  Popular urban slang ‘Sheng’ finds its roots here and is an attempt to break the ethnic divide.  Widespread music genres in Kenya such as Genge, Boomba, Kapuka, and Odi Dance, have roots in the slums.

The creative industries are coming of age and are among the most dynamic sectors.  Kenyans are now more interested in content made locally – there is a creative renaissance and an emerging market boom, but it is occasioned by massive skills gaps.
