An afro-electronic French-Ghanaian duo is set to perform at Nairobi’s Alliance Francaise (AF) at the end of August.
Preceding the duo that comprises DJ BBRAVE and music producer GAFACCI on August 30, 2017 in the central business district of Nairobi shall be a collection of Kenyan DJs who shall be expected to give music lovers a taste of their versatile creativity and performance skills.
The Showcase Wednesday event, AF says, provides a small intimate setting for singers, musicians, music and poetry collaborations to get exposure and build audiences.
Meanwhile, the Kenya Museum Society (KMS) is inviting artists to submit their work to its annual fund-raising event scheduled for October 27-29, 2017.
Describing the event as ‘the largest juried art show in East Africa,’ KMS, that supports the National Museums of Kenya, requests members of the public who know any artist who would be interested in the event to apply for consideration.
Such artists are requested to send their name, phone and email contacts and stating the type of work they would like to submit (painting, sculpture, photography or mixed media) to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
The three-day KMS Affordable Art Show shall be held at Nairobi National Museum between Friday and Sunday.
While the opening party on Friday evening is expected to give art lovers the chance to view and buy art while enjoying drinks and music and attracts a Sh500 entry fee, Saturday and Sunday are set aside exclusively for viewing, appreciating and buying art from morning to evening. There is no gate charge and KMS says it shall even have a children’s art appreciation event.
All proceeds from the event, KMS says, will be used to support projects of the National Museums of Kenya.
