Personal highlights

  1. Shifteye Gallery: nice art gallery in Kilimani, but rather empty when I was there
  2. Exhibition: Arts to End Slavery, with some discussion and show acts (missed)
  3. HAART Kenya: organiser of the exhibition, organisation to fight human trafficking
  4. Trafficking: trade of human beings for labour or sex is still a huge topic in Kenya
  5. Art in Kenya: is existing! but not so many people know about it or care about it
