Kibera Creative Arts (KiCA) is a Community Based Organization (CBO) located at the heart of the Kibera slum (Nairobi, Kenya).
Kibera Creative Arts (KiCA) aims at empowering the community of Kibera through Arts both economically and socially.
We want to change Kibera's narrative to one of hope, talent and opportunity for growth.
We provide the community with the services and facilities that enable them to benefit from a rich and lively artistic sector through;
- Creating platforms for talent to showcase their skill and exchange knowledge
- Providing an alternative source of income for the youth
- Mentoring via workshops featuring experienced individuals in the arts and entertainment industry
- Providing spaces where talents can rehearse and perfect their skill while receiving positive criticism from general public and professionals
- Enabling resources so the community can strengthen their artistic talents as well as self awareness and reflexion
People use crafts, poetry, music, painting, dance, acting or comedy as ways to tell their stories. It is the collection of all these diverse talents of the people of our community that draws the fascinating, constantly moving, picture of Kibera.
OUR FOUR PROGRAMS
To assure a wider reach and impact we have concentrad our focus on four programs:
Arts&Crafts, Performing Arts, Music Recording and Production and Mentorship Programs
We want to offer Kibera a space to create, to dream, to learn to meet, to grow, to enjoy and to live their dreams. Our plan is to build a creative space in the heart of Kibera where we can centralize the execution of our four pillars.
