UTA-Do 2023 - Workshop

This event – the closing of UTA-Do 2023 workshop – is an occasion to meet and interact with two of Nairobi’s most highly regarded artists, James Mweu and Peterson Kamwathi. Both in person and online, the two artists will engage in a conversation about how their different practices (dance/theatre and visual arts) can engage public space in a city like Nairobi. The exchange will be moderated by The GoDown Arts Centre’s executive director Joy Mboya, with imputs Dr Willie J. Wright, who is assistant professor at Rutgers University (jointly in the Geography and Africana Studies department), as well as one of UTA-Do 2023 guest kenynote speakers. This event is a collaboration between UTA-Do, The GoDown Arts Centre Nairobi, and is supported by a Seminar Series Award from the Urban Studies Foundation, grant reference: USF-SSA-230306.

"With an International Fellowship I was able to receive the mentorship, time and resources that I needed to help me sit in my ideas. As a result, I am now more confident that the ideas I endeavour to put forward, informed, predominantly, by African and Southern experiences and theories, have value beyond my immediate geographies."
