Take Action

Tales of the Accidental City is a portrait of Nairobi and the myriad of lives that inhabit it. It is also a play that raises a number of justice issues faced by Africans living in cities across the continent, including: Social injustice and economic inequality in cities; urban migration; corruption and impunity; police brutality; gender inequalities.


In order to promote the audio play and spur deeper conversations of the issues raised therein, we’ve created a spin-off series in partnership with the Pan-African online media platform This is Africa. The #NairobiNiMimi (Nairobi is Me) series, inspired by the popular social impact journalism project, Humans Of New York, is a weekly photo-story of ordinary citizens telling stories about themselves and their city.

If you are an organization working in social justice or in civic education and want to use the play as an educational tool, get it touch with us. We will send you the play (audio and video) as well as a toolkit with ideas on how you can use the play to catalyze critical conversations in your community.

We are also doing listening parties and screenings in communities. Want to partner or fund one? Please get in touch!
