This exhibition is a curation of images gathered in 2015 while the group intentionally traversed Kenya in search of captivating and insightful visual stories. It is a call to see Kenya through the eyes of Kenyans, as well as to inspire Kenyans to hit the road and to create their own amazing photographic memories.

Play for Change, Feb. 2 2016 @ Alliance

play for change

“Play for Change” is not the the classic theatre performance: the public is part of it!
It’s indeed a “Theatre of the Oppressed” performance, a technique of the Participatory Educational Theatre:
IF they wish, the audience can intervene, try solutions and propose new policies about life and challenges on human rights promotion in Kenya, that will be the focus of the proposed plays.
(or just sit down and enjoy what happens, you get involved only if you want to!)

FREE ENTRANCE, just book your place:

Did you know that this technique has been used even to create new laws in some countries?
For more information about the Theatre of the Oppressed, click here:

The performance will be directed by Olivier Malcor, from Participarte (
