Rewind Fast Forward Event: Respect moderated by Dr. Njoki Ngumi, Mar. 15 2014 @ the Nest


What makes us hold some people in high regard – and what makes us deny others the same? How do we act towards those we honour – and what makes us decide whether to look up to people or not? Are all people worthy of respect?

The Nest’s second Rewind Fast Forward event explores the instinct, contention and actions behind how we decide to treat people, focusing on where they come from and what they do.

Join the forum theater moderator Dr. Njoki Ngumi and the cast of Maggie Karanja, Millicent Ogutu, Olwenya Maina and Sam Psenjen on Saturday 15th from 2pm – 5pm and have your say!
