Chimurenga Nairobi Launch in Collaboration With Kwani? – 5.30 p.m, 26th June 2015
Join us for a conversation with Billy Kahora (Kwani Trust), Ntone Edjabe (Chimurenga), Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor and Ngala Chome on June 26th at Pawa 254, Maguezi Theatre.
In 2011, Kwani Trust collaborated with Chimurenga on the 1st issue of The Chronic. The issue engaged with the question: when will the new emerge – and if it is already here, how do we decipher it? Now, Kwani and Chimu have worked together again on a recent issue of Chronic focusing on new cartographies of Africa – the issue is a response to Achille Mbembe’s essay, ‘At The Edge Of The World’.
On 26th June, Kwani welcomes Chimurenga Editor, Ntone Edjabe to talk about his vision for the project to Contributing Editor Billy Kahora and launch the collaborative issue at PAWA 254. They will be joined by East African writers, Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, Ngala Chome and Dalle Abraham who will present their contributions to the project.
