Musical Performance: by Children of KAG, Spurgeons & Valley View Academy, Nov. 11 2014 @ Spurgeons School – Kibera
ANNO’S AFRICA & ONE FINE DAY would like to invite you to a musical performance by the children from KAG Academy, Spurgeons Academy and Valley View Academy on Tuesday, 11th November at 12 noon at Spurgeons school in Kibera.
The children will be demonstrating the skills that they have acquired during the Anno’s Africa intensive workshops and the One Fine Day weekly arts clubs.
ANNOS’S AFRICA & ONE FINE DAY
ANNO’S AFRICA, was founded by Bee Gilbert and Andrew Birkin, in memory of their son, Anno, in 2006. The purpose of the UK registered charity is to give children in the poorest slums in Kenya, the chance to discover their as yet unexplored artistic potential and the opportunity to lead imaginative and self-determined lives.
Anno’s Africa, works in partnership with ONE FINE DAY e.V., an NGO founded by Marie Steinmann-Tykwer and Tom Tykwer in Berlin in 2008. These two charities, have combined forces in a programme which offers intensive creative workshops for children and young people living in the Nairobi slums of Kibera and Mathare.
More then 700 participants are free to choose from various arts disciplines, according to their preferences: traditional and contemporary dance, ballet, drama, creative writing/storytelling, music, circus skills, and visual arts. European mentors teach side by side with Kenyan artists and performers, who then continue the lessons in once weekly arts clubs, for the rest of the year.
Continuity is at the heart of the philosophy and commitment from ONE FINE DAY e.V. and ANNO’S AFRICA. With regard to these weekly art clubs, as the firm belief is that young artistic talents should evolve constantly. And these regularly scheduled classes give the children, who live such difficult and challenging lives, an exciting bright spot once a week. Currently 24 such creative weekend clubs are taking place in all disciplines through out the year.
The positive results are unequivocal and the children are all making significant progress not only in the arts but in their academic achievements as well. And all of these talented kids are finding not only self-confidence but also great joy in their lives through their new found artistic skills and the development of their imaginations.
Sign your kids up for the Kuona Trust Holiday art Workshops and give them a chance to explore their artistic talent.
