Nairobi Forum: Our Collective Security – Writers in Conversation, Jun. 28 2014 @ National Museum

Date: Saturday, 28 June 2014
Venue: Louis Leakey Auditorium, Nairobi National Museum
Time: 5pm – 9pm
Entry: Prior Reservation.
RSVP here

The killings in Mpeketoni on 15 and 16 June are the latest in a series of violent events that are challenging the security of Kenya and the East Africa region more broadly. The words ‘terrorism’, ‘assassinations’, ‘tribal clashes’, ‘violent crime’, ‘domestic violence’ regularly appear in mainstream and social media headlines. Traumatic pictures of the aftermath fill the newspapers and TV screens. Kenya is no stranger to violent conflict, as the 2008 post-election violence attests to, but some analysts see the current resurgence as something new. There is no shortage of views on the causes of the current insecurity. Some blame external threats, religious ideology, identity, resource competition, youth unemployment, marginalisation, political intrigue, corruption and inefficiency of the security services. Others point to a failure of collective responsibility.

In the latest in a series of conversations with well-known writers, Kwani Trust, in partnership with the Rift Valley Institute’s Nairobi Forum, have invited a panel of writers to discuss these pressing matters. The writers include:

NoViolet Bulawayo, Writer
Parselelo Kantai, Writer
Rashid Abdi, Journalist
Billy Kahora, Writer and Kwani? managing editor

This conversation follows a session at 5pm at the same venue titled, Meet the Writers, featuring the three shortlisted writers of the Etisalat Prize for Literature, Africa’s most prestigious literary prize: NoViolet Bulawayo (Zimbabwe), Yewande Omotoso (Nigeria/South Africa) and Karen Jennings (South Africa).

Special guests will also offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow. Munch 150: A superb show and a fantastic event film.
The 90-minute film provides a Full High Definition walkthrough of the exhibit, in depth commentary about featured pieces and a “behind the scenes” look at the process of putting the exhibition together.

The screening with be followed by a conversation with local Kenyan artist Shabu Mwangi whose work is evocative of Munch’s subject matter and style.

Real Life Events Inspire Fiction
12.45pm -2.00pm| Ampitheatre
Authors Kinyanjui Kombani (The Last Villains of Molo) and Richard Crompton (The Honey Guide) both set their novels against a backdrop of real life events – the Molo tribal clashes of 1992 and the electoral violence of 2007.
What are the issues and ethics of incorporating real-life events into fiction? How does reality work in a narrative context? And does there need to be a certain distance, in time or space, between the events described and the decision to create a work of fiction about them? Can novelists tell a greater truth about real events than journalists or historians are capable of? Or are they exploiting human tragedy for the sake of entertainment?

Date: September 17, 2013
Venue: Anfitheatre, National Museum of Kenya
Time: 10 am
Entry: Confirmations at nyambura@embamex.co.ke

Performance of the children musical Group “El Rincón de la Marimba”, from Oaxaca, Mexico

The musical project “El Rincón de la Marimba”, from the Mexican state of Oaxaca, is making an international tour in Africa, and now its Kenya’s turn to hear them perform. The musical project “El Rincón de la Marimba”, was created to strengthen the appreciation of children towards the marimba. This programme has promoted the creation of 16 child and juvenile marimba groups with the participation of almost 100 children from different communities of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. The Project is aimed at rescuing the marimba music of the regions of the Isthmus, Papaloapanand Sierra Juárez, in Oaxaca, where the instrument was in danger of disappearing.

The Mexican Council for Arts and Culture (CONACULTA) and Harp Helu Foundation has provided support for the continuous training of 42 children in performing the Mexican musical instrument “marimba”, under the guidance of professorSotero Ruiz. This programme is aimed at promoting the tradition of this music with the support of the families, community and the government.

This Project was awarded the Coming Up Taller 2008 Award, from the USA. In 2009, it participated in the Bogota Book Fair; in 2010, it performed in the World Expo in Shanghai, China, at the Kennedy Centre in Washington, D.C. and in the commemoration festivities of the Mexican Revolution.

In this regard, the Embassy of Mexico and the Nairobi National Museum have the pleasure to invite you to listen to this majestic performance of Mexican children between 12 and 15 years old, on Tuesday 17th September at 10am at the Amphitheatre of the said museum.

Film Screening: Chasing Ice, Apr. 27 2013 @ the Louis Leakey Auditorium – National Museum of Kenya

Chasing Ice
Film Screening: Saturday, 27th April 2013, Refreshments at 3:30pm, Film at 4pm
Venue: The Louis Leakey Auditorium at the National Museum of Kenya
Entrance: FREE

Presented by the U.S. Embassy, United States Agency for International Development, United Nations Environment Programme, and the Kenya Museum Society

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog went to the Arctic on an assignment with National Geographic to capture images intended to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change; but through his Extreme Ice Survey he discovers evidence of our changing planet. Chasing Ice follows Balog across the Arctic as he deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras designed to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. Balog’s hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Traveling with a young team of adventurers by helicopter, canoe and dog sled across three continents, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story in human history.

The film was awarded Excellence in Cinematography, US Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar for best original song, among many other notable awards. The film will only be screened once in Nairobi. See it April 27th!
