Experience an exciting and informative program of talk, music, dance, art, storytelling and much more as we celebrate the contributions of the Somali people to the beauty and cultural richness of Kenya.
Featuring some of the best known thinkers, writers, performers and live entertainment stages, the Somali Heritage Week will showcase the best of Somali culture from Kenya and the region on the theme “Identity: What does it mean to be Somali in Kenya?” The goal of this event is to create a place where Somali people and lovers of culture can come together to celebrate the community, to engage with the challenges facing the community, to sustain traditions and to provide a learning opportunity for those outside the culture.
The central site for the Heritage Week is the National Museum of Kenya, Museum Hill in Nairobi, Kenya, although a parallel youth programme will happen in at Awjaama Omar in Eastleigh and at PAWA 254 in Milimani.
