This is Nairobi’s unique new social enterprise and collaborative space for creatives and youth to achieve work of social impact. It opened its doors on January 3, 2012.
This hub aims to house, foster, and catalyze creative and community-driven projects for social change across Kenya. It is the first of its kind in Africa.
PAWA254 derives its name from a combination of “power” in Swahili and 254, Kenya’s country code, as a symbol of national strength and unity.
The new hub aims to facilitate the use of visual and graphic arts, independent and citizen journalism, documentary film and photography, and digital and social media as means of civic expression and social action. To achieve this, the hub facility will bring together established and aspiring photographers, cartoonists, animators, creative designers, video & filmmakers, as well as entrepreneurs and activists, to work, learn, and share in an environment that inspires creativity and innovative efforts to bring about social change.
PS: This is a membership paying facility and more information can be found on their website http://www.pawa254.org/
