Art from Below is taking over!

Standard

This year, in the Kibera Artists Group we are now commiting to meet weekly, having Chai/Art Thursdays at CTM, where artists are just encouraged to come with their own artwork to work on- in hopes that artists will network, encourage, and learn from each other in expanding arts community. Four leaders have been indentified in the group and will be taking responsiblity for roles, including hosting Thursday nights, planning events, contacting artists and documenting group activities, identifying resources and finding funding to help pay for expenses. The leaders have begun to meet on Tuesdays. So already 2 days involve somthing, and then if you add trips to Go Down Art Center in Nairobi or weeekend community projects such as mural painting and facepainting, you have a pretty active group and a packed week!
