Karakana Initiative is an artist-run social enterprise that provides learning, information, resources and mentorship programmes to artists and creatives in Kenya.

Karakana means 'workshop' in Swahili, a name we chose to signify the many categories in the creative economy that we represent.

So you want to be a Photographer in Kenya?

Our first online session in what will be a series of many workshops is for photography beginners who want to have a good understanding of the Kenyan landscape.


This will be a free one-hour online workshop coming up in early April. The workshop will offer you a learning platform as well as online interaction with your instructor and other students who will have signed up for the class.

We shall be opening up the sign-ups on Monday 30th March.

Online Resources

Information is power. In fact, they say, if you know you know!

Our commitment to artists and creatives extends to availing information, contacts and other resources that will equip you the artist to excel, to see opportunity and catapult you to you to live your creative dream.
