Get Creative: Crafting & Conveying Your Message through Street, Guerrilla, Graffiti Art (for artists and non-artists)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session is designed to help non-artist professionals with the process of how to think creatively to convey your information or message. A team of Nairobi-based graffiti artist-activists will help you in building strong concepts and narratives through visual and street art. Also, we will discuss how to work in collaboration with artists to reach your audiences. Be prepared with your info, in all its complexities. It will be a hands-on, iterative workshop, but you don't need any artistic background.
