As Kenya prepares to celebrate 50 years of independence in 2013, over ten businesses, non-governmental and religious organizations and prominent individuals have come together to reflect on the history of Kilimani and explore its future as a community of choice in Nairobi.
The first major activity, a three part photo-exhibition, is being launched this Saturday 17th November at 10.00, Ground floor, Yaya Centre. The exhibition includes historic photos and stories on the origins and history of Kilimani. Two weeks later, several photographs of Kilimani today (Kilimani leo) will be displayed by Kilimani photographers, professional and amateur alike.
This is the first attempt to celebrate community in this way by a major shopping mall. Brought together under the umbrella of The Kilimani Project, these organizations will host the very first Kilimani Festival on December 15th. This will be a festival of music, art, food, conversations and games.

There is a deeply entrenched notion that as a craft maker, you cannot make a decent living (remember the notorious question- is this all you do for a living?). And yet it isn’t necessarily true and we will prove it to you.
Join us for our 4th Jumpstart Thursday as we bust the myth of the “starving artist”. We will be talking about how to “Make Good Money from Your Craft”. Our Guest speaker, Zohra Baraka has been in the handicrafts business for over 20 years, has a turnover of over USD150, 000 PA (and that’s when sales are very low), is constantly showcasing at international trade shows and has developed a product that can only be described as A1.
She will be joined by Joan Karanja, former founding member of The Cooperation of Fair trade In Africa (COFTA) and Jacinta Kioko-Mwaura of Niro Collection.
AND the best part is, to allow as many of you to attend this business changing event, we are offering you an early Christmas Offer- buy 2 tickets for the price of one (1000Kshs).
