Conference: Popular Expression in the Silicon Savanna – Perspectives on the Digitization of Art and Life in Kenya, Jul. 10 2012 @ Goethe


While it remains to be seen whether the digital revolution will bring Kenyas ‘Vision 2030′ to fruition, digital technologies are clearly transforming the landscape of Kenyan popular culture. In Kenya today, popular music is being produced on computers and consumed on mobile phones; fiction is being published, read, and commented upon in blogs; poetry is being podcast; religious and political slogans are circulating on Twitter.

This conference brings together Kenyan and non-Kenyan scholars, intellectuals, and cultural practitioners for lively presentations and discussions on the ways in which digital technologies are transforming the production, consumption, reception, monetization, and politicization of popular expression in Kenya – all with a view toward developing a better understanding of Kenyan society in the digital age.

Organised by Prof. Mbugua wa-Mungai (Kenyatta University) and Dr. Andrew J. Eisenberg (University of Oxford), with support from the Goethe-Institut Kenya and the ‘Music, Digitisation, Mediation’ Research Programme at the University of Oxford, UK

Date: July 10, 2012
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium
Time: 10am-4pm
Entry: Free

SYNOPSIS
Inside Mrs Joe Bradshaw – 42 year-old mother of two grown children – is the former shirley valentine longing to get out. Her hope and self confidence badly shattered by school,marriage and life,she is reduced to talking to the kitchen wall whilst preparing her husband’s evening meal – to be on the table as he opens the front door every night. As she sips a glass of wine she dreams of drinking in a country where the grape is grown. Her feminist friend offers her a holiday in Greece and,with great trepidation and a lot of forward planning,Shirley seizes the opportunity and goes,to encounter a totally different lifestyle. Shirley,breaking out of the mould cast for her by society,is brilliantly shown with humour,warm sympathy and human insight by the author of EDUCATING RITA and BLOOD BROTHERS.

This play is directed by Millicent Ogutu
