s Kenya prepares to celebrate 50 years of independence in 2013, over ten businesses, non-governmental and religious organizations and prominent individuals have come together to reflect on the history of Kilimani and explore its future as a community of choice in Nairobi.
The first major activity, a three part photo-exhibition is being launched this Saturday 15th December at 10:00, at Kilimani Primary School . The exhibition includes historic photos and stories on the origins and history of Kilimani. Two weeks later, several photographs taken by professional and amateur photographs of Kilimani today (Kilimani Leo) will be displayed.
This is the first attempt to celebrate community in this way by a major shopping mall. Brought together under the umbrella of The Kilimani Project, these organizations will host the very first Kilimani Festival on 15th December. This will be a festival of music, art, food, conversations and games.
The Kilimani Project has called on its creatives and its creatives have responded. Set to grace the stage Eric Wainaina, Suzanna Owiyo, Atemi Oyungu, DJ Adrian and others are coming on board. So come out and enjoy an afternoon of music by Kilimanians and an entire day lined up with activities such as a community dialogue tent hosted by Naipolitans, a wellness tent hosted by a local hospital and Bikram Yoga Nairobi, an Kili-kids Korner hosted by Beezy Beez of Yaya Centre & Capital FM, the Kilimani Speaks Exhibition hosted by Kuona Trust and many more!
