The Girl Art Project is a one of a kind exhibition in Nairobi running from October 18 to November 8, 2011 at the Godown Arts Centre.
It is a joint project between two groups MWA, Minority Women in Action which advocates for LBTI women’s rights and AFRA-Kenya (Artists for Recognition and Acceptance – an organization of Lesbian Bisexual and Trans Women) through the support of UHAI-EASHRI, the East African Sexual Health and Rights Initiative.
The theme of the exhibition is inspired by the female form, presence and experience.
The exhibition is set to feature the work of three female artists, Kawira Mwichira, Remmy Ireri and Shillah Mombo who is also known as Subira. The exhibition seeks to create a creative outlet and provide both participants and art patrons an opportunity to contribute to a worthy social cause.
All the work being shown will be available for sale and all of the proceeds from art sales or donations will be given to a charity called ‘Children of Africa Hope Mission School.’ The mission school provides education for orphans and vulnerable children.
Online updates regarding the exhibition, the artists and the proceeds beneficiary are available on Facebook page Girl Art Project (The GAP) or on twitter @GirlArtProject.
