Re-Imagined Storytelling Festival
We have held two editions of the festival, in March 2016 and December 2018.
We partnered with Kwani in the first edition for a day of storytelling, music, poetry, workshops, and art exhibitions.
The second edition was held in partnership with the Alliance Française de Nairobi. It was a week long and included community outreach performances and workshops around Nairobi – Mathare, Buru Buru and Eastleigh; Master classes; and a festival day of performances. It featured storytellers from South Africa, Sierra Leone, Morocco, Australia and Kenya.
Night of Tales
This series brings local and international tellers together on one stage. We have had the pleasure to host some of the world’s finest storytellers!
Our themed poetry nights delve into a range of topics, such as ‘the transatlantic connections of the Black Diaspora’. They also offer a space for budding poets to take the mic!
Featuring our favourite musicians and singers, either on a big stage or in an intimate living room setting, these nights are loved by all.
