Learning, Mentorship and Collaboration

Kenya’s creative industries are on an unprecedented growth for the past several years, with the youth bracket increasingly getting into the creative space. At Karakana Initiative, we have put together a series of discussions led by experienced, knowledgeable and creative panelists in what we call Karakana Dialogues.


In the first season, we shall have the panel discussions every 2 weeks at the Kenya Cultural Centre (Kenya National Theatre) in Nairobi. We hope to have meaningful discussions that will shape the future we want for our creative industries Kenya.
