...we are all about the

Creative Economy.

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

Why are we here?

We work with Kenyan creatives in fashion and crafts, modeling, design, painting and drawing, illustrations and cartoons, graffiti, gaming and comics, photography, TV and film, interior design, architecture, dance, poetry, animation among others.
