Dates: Until July 31, 2021

Venue: Alliance Française Nairobi


Explore Nairobi through he eyes of four commuters as they walk, bicycle, ride boda bodas, take matatus, and hire Ubers around Nairobi. Will we ever see the end of the Nairobi traffic gridlock?  Did you know that peak-hour commuters in Nairobi spend an average of 320 hours a year in traffic?  The equivalent of more than 13 days.
The exhibition has been produced by the Civic Data Design Lab (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) which works with data to understand it for public good. The Lab seeks to develop alternative practices which can make the work they do with data and images richer, smarter, more relevant, and more responsive to the needs and interests of citizens traditionally on the margins of policy development.
