Launch: The Kilimani Jana Photo-Exhibition, Nov. 17 2012 @ Yaya Centre – Ground floor
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.
