We are commissioning art for #NRBLibraries
Over the past year, we have been working on the physical restoration of two of McMillan Memorial Library’s satellite branches; Kaloleni Library and Eastlands Library in Makadara. We are almost done with this aspect of our continuing work, and are calling on Nairobi’s visual artists to work with us, to bring some funk into these precious spaces! For the Eastlands Library in Makadara, we are inviting visual artists (painters, photographers, sculptors, mixed-media artists, and all others) to apply for this paid opportunity to contribute to the library’s first-ever collection!
