In mid-October, TARA H.Q. joined hands with the Nairobi National Museums Art Club (NANAMAC) in a two day mentoring workshop for upcoming young artists selected from different schools within Nairobi. The participants were creatively involved in the drawing of rock art photographs which they interpreted in a contemporary way. On the second day, teams collaboratively decorated a ‘mazera’ stone mural in the lower botanical garden of the National Museums of Kenya. The event showcased modern graffiti symbols blended with ancient rock art representations. The goal of the exercise was to leave a legacy for future generations and to create an educational outdoor space for teachers and learners. It is the intentions of both TARA and NANAMAC to plan an annual activity based on the success of this venture. Thank you to everyone involved in this inaugural workshop.
