What makes Nairobi, Nairobi?
This question will be the focus of this month’s conversation as Joy Mboya and Judy Ogana of the GoDown Arts Centre tell us about the Centre’s Nairobi Project which takes the question of identity and belonging in the city to the neighbourhood level.
The Project will support the 12 neighbourhood zones of Nairobi explore questions such as:
+ Who are we at a neighbourhood level?
+ What do we care about?
+ And what elements make my neighbourhood feel like a community?
Collectively, these neighbourhoods will be responding to the question “Nai ni Who?”
Come hear more about this project and take part in a conversation that delves into the question of what makes up Nairobi’s identity and how best to showcase these elements.
