Uweza Foundation Kenya
Voices is partnering with Uweza Foundation to bring artworks of young and talented artist from Nairobi, Kenya. There are no opportunities for creative expression or development of artistic talent in most Kenyan schools, and opportunities to participate in art for Kibera children and youth are extremely limited, despite a plethora of artistic talent. The Uweza Art Gallery opened in 2013 to provide art students with their own space and materials to paint and market their artwork.
You can view the recording of our first Virtual Gallery experience on December 6, 2020 see the paintings and meet the artists.
