Ubuntu Fireplace Event, May 9 2015 @ Kuona Trust

Ubuntu Fire place
Date & Time: Saturday, May 9th 2015, 6pm
Venue: Kuona Trust, Nairobi
Tickets: Advance tickets are 1500 via paybill number 885989. 1800 at the gate.

About
Café UBUNTU, a project of CTC International, which is an incubator of social enterprise empowering people to do amazing things-, is teaming up with Tree House Media, a film production and talent management company to bring “UBUNTU Fireplace”.

What: “UBUNTU Fireplace” is an artistic showcase of local Kenyan talent, which draws upon the historical centerpiece of fire-based storytelling, music and dance. It is set against the backdrop of Café UBUNTU, a place based farm-to-table project of CTC International in Maai Mahiu, and contributes to growing community through local art, local food, and social enterprise.

Why: Through the Fireplace initiative, we seek to inject a cultural consciousness into this region. To effectively induce this consciousness and move this vision toward success, we must turn to the concept of UBUNTU, “I am because we are”. The event will be hosted by the power team NAZIZI and WYRE. This will indeed be an appropriate and strategic platform to analyze our cultural inadequacies as pertains to community service and social integration, thereby forging forthright measures to counter these shortcomings.

With the money raised from each event, we will not only be supporting local talent and local business, but will also be donating a portion of funds each month to a specific program of CTC International. All proceeds from May will go towards supporting the Malaika Mums and Malaika Kids program. These Malaika Mums all have one thing in common- they each have a child with special needs. These children are all enrolled in our school where they receive various therapy treatments and learning opportunities. Thus, the women come together to earn income for their families, support the education of their children, and support each other, while making products that improve the environment.

Exhibition: Full Frontal by Jessica Atieno, May 7-21 2015 @ Kuona Trust

Full Frontal at KT
Opening at Kuona Trust on the 7th of May 2015
Time: 6 pm

Exhibition runs until May 21 2015

About
Full Frontal presents a witty but hard-hitting look into feminism and female gender stereotypes today.
It opens up a dialogue as to what really is being woman as opposed to being female. Does being female automatically mean that one is a woman?

Exhibition: Fringe Churches in the Periphery of Seoul, Apr. 9-19 2015 @ Kuona Trust

Fringe Churches
Opening: April 9, 2015 at 6 pm
Venue: Kuona Trust

Exhibition dates: April 9-19, 2015

Concept
This documentary work represents an inquiry into the religious, cultural and financial dynamics of non-traditional churches located in the periphery of Seoul.
At the same time, it explores the diversity of architectural designs that range from the traditional hanok style house-churches to the so-called mega churches that accommodate thousands of parishioners.
In the process, the work questions the functions that churches perform in contemporary South Korean society.

About the artist
Noah Miller is a photographer born in the United States and raised in Germany. He has been pursuing photography seriously for the last 15 years and studied the medium at the International Center of Photography (New York City), the former London College of Printing, the Torpedo Factory (Washington, DC) and Eyes in Progress (Paris). In 2004, he was a winner in the ABB international photo competition.

His current work has shifted towards exploring the interplay of people and their constructed environments. While living in Nairobi, he would like to explore the ethnography of interracial families as his next long-term project.
