ZIWA ~A Kenyan & Ugandan Art Show Benefiting Arts Education in East Africa


SEATTLE, WA- Fresh off the heels of the wildly successful Madaraka Festival at EMP Museum in June, One Vibe Africa co-presents ZIWA, a collective multi-media experience (photography, video, music and painting) providing an intimate experience of the vibrant culture, people and landscape of sister countries, Kenya and Uganda. Inspired by the continuity of creativity of East African youth, this event showcases photos and art created by professionals alongside equally captivating images shot by youth. ZIWA is Kiswahili for “lake” and in this instance, represents Lake Victoria, which directly connects Kenya and Uganda.

All proceeds from this show will go to growing arts education in Kenya and Uganda by supporting:

One Vibe Africa (Kenya) a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering orphans and disadvantaged youth in Kenya through music and the arts.

Bavubuka Allstarz Foundation(Uganda) a nonprofit organization that believes connecting youth with music and the arts can transform lives and unify diverse communities.

This Opening Night Celebration is on Thursday, July 3rd from 6-10pm. It's a kick-off party featuring live music from legendary Ugandan hip-hop artist Babaluku in his first ever Seattle show plus a performance from musician/artist Kamau Ngigi of pioneering Kenyan hip-hop group Kalamashaka.

The event is all-ages. Cover charge is $5 which includes the performances.
About the Producers:

Meg Stacker, a Seattle-based freelance photographer and producer, traveled to Kenya to launch her first Disposable Camera Project with the children of the CRCA Orphanage in Naivasha in 2012. She wanted to see their world through their eyes, not just return with images of an outsider’s observations. This breathtaking collection of images takes you on a captivating journey of the beauty and energy that radiates throughout the country, and includes photographs taken by the youth. Inspired by the experience, Meg has partnered with One Vibe Africa to continue her involvement with youth arts education in Africa.

Scott Macklin, Associate Director of the Communication Leadership graduate program at the University of Washington and Jonathan Cunningham (EMP Museum/Seattle Arts Commission) traveled to Kampala in March of 2014 to co-facilitate the Obumu Media Lab, a week-long deep dive aimed at teaching youth in Kampala’s expansive hip-hop scene the skills to produce their digital media projects. While in Uganda Scott and Jonathan worked together with youth and adult mentors at the Bavubuka Foundation to document their experiences. All photos in this installation showcase the raw tenacity of hip-hop change-makers in Uganda.
