You are cordially invited to the launch of the Crayon Rainbows exhibit. Commissioned by Hivos International through their SDI Programme, Crayon Rainbows is a documentary film and art exhibition that traces the growing divide/breakdown between teachers and their vocational devotion to their students in Kenyan public schools as told through the eyes of the children interviewed.
The production team held creative workshops that gave the children a platform to express their feelings about what school means to them. Apart from the interviews, the children partook in drawing, painting, play dough, photography and craft making exercises as well as song and dance.The project sampled 5 schools across Lamu, Samburu, Turkana, Nairobi and Tharaka-Nithi. These art works are what form the exhibit on display.
What the team found was a crayon box worth of dreams and disappointment nestled in a rainbow of hope.
