Jukwaani! Is a project by Goethe-Institut and Alliance Française in association with the Kenya Cultural Center. It is a joint initiative supported by the special fund for cultural projects established by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of both France and Germany created on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Elysée Treaty sealing reconciliation and friendship between the two countries. The festival is held in conjunction with the conference “Swahili poetry in performance” organized by Bordeaux and Bayreuth universities and IFRA at IFRA-BIEA.
Some of the hottest poets, story tellers, dancers, actors and hip hop acts.
There is something contagious about the words and actions used to express the wisdom in presentations. They radiate vibrancy and honesty and courage. And when you immerse yourself in the glow of the truth to be had you have to change the way you think, act and even speak.
