Small and mighty - our engagements in US and Kenya

JULY 2016: COLOUR IN FAITH

Thank you for your support and interest in limeSHIFT. Our monthly newsletters cover our projects, opportunities for artists and interesting articles and exhibits. This month, we are highlighting our project, Colour in Faith.

"Color in Faith" moves mountains (and people)

For the past year, Yazmany and Nabila have been working to bring to life Colour In Faith in Nairobi, Kenya. This intervention unites communities across Nairobi by focusing on their houses of worship and painting those structures yellow as a physical manifestation of 'love,' the most important value in any religion or community.

Panel Discussion at the Yard

Colour in Faith painted The Bus at the Yard yellow. The Bus is an important location in the heart of Nairobi for the creative community and hosts music, art, farmer’s markets and other events. We invited fifteen artists to post words about their identity on an interactive wall. We held a panel at The Yard on June 5th 2016 on ‘Can Art Shift Culture?’
