Peace And Love is a collage of poetry, music and dance – which invites the audience to find, understand and celebrate the self in order to enjoy peace and love with life and each other. The journey through each of the forms in production (poetry, music and dance) trails the story of coming of age from a point of pain, loss, despair and confusion to a point of clarity, growth, hope, peace and love. The production is a metaphor for different stories of our times; from personal experiences, the economy and state of affairs, to corrosion of culture and morality. It all culminates in a powerful resonance with the need to keep hope alive, the need to seek forgiveness and growth, the need to foster peace and love.
The Prevail Arts Company production features poetry written by Joan Sikand performed by Nick Ndeda, Fridah Muhindi and Laura Ekumbo. Live music performed by Serro and Checkmate Mido that borrows a lot from the seventies retro culture webbed together by contemporary dance by Bridgetta Ikwara. The production is produced and directed by Kigondu Martin.

Ciné-concert: ‘A Million Things | Rouch 100’ with Pedro Pinto & Tiago Corria-Paulo, Apr. 28 2017 @ Alliance Française Auditorium
‘A Million Things | Rouch 100’ with Pedro Pinto & Tiago Corria-Paulo
On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Jean Rouch, universally-acclaimed French filmmaker, anthropologist and explorer, Pedro Silva Pinto and Tiago Corria-Paulo, Mozambican musicians, present a cine-concert around the cinematographic works of Jean Rouch, the force behind the cinéma-vérité movement of the 20th century.
The point of departure of this audio and visual experience is footage from Jean Rouch’s ethnographic films. It is complemented by a researched musical narration by the two musicians that draws the viewer into an all immersive experience. The ciné-concert is a tribute to the visual anthropology of Africa documented by this respected filmmaker over a period of 50 years.

Many people fleeing conflicts hope that refugee camps would be a temporary home while they await peace and stability to return to their home countries. Unfortunately, many have ended up staying in the camps for decades.
On Thursday 1 December 2016, the Rift Valley Forum and the Church of Sweden will screen the documentary, If we ever get out of here, by Marika Grieshel and Lollo Jarnebrink, followed by a discussion.
If we ever get out of here documents the lives of ordinary people who have become long-term refugees, stuck in the Kakuma camp, suspended from opportunity and isolated from all that is familiar.
The story of the daily struggles of Klementine, Deeqa and Jackson aims to give a greater understanding of the importance of psychosocial support for refugees.
The Kakuma refugee camp was founded in Kenya in 1991 and was originally planned as a temporary solution for young boys fleeing the civil wars in Sudan. It is now home to about 200, 000 people forced to flee conflict in the neighbouring countries.
