Art

Cultural Video Foundation operates in the art sector collaborating with different african and international artists. CVF main activity is the production of music video and the development of art and music documentaries.

Public space superhero Upendo Hero and the Ukoo Flani hip-hop clan set forth from Nairobi to wintry Berlin, on a social and cultural quest to understand the impact of gentrification and the privatisation of public spaces on public art. During their journey, they uncover the importance of public spaces for community, and for cultural and collective memory. A highly entertaining and music-filled challenge – even call to arms – from these hip-hop artists and their super hero, for artists and concerned urban citizens alike to take a stand in claiming and reclaiming public spaces for art.

Most of us just sit and wait for the governments to take action about climate change, Wafalme instead think that together with small actions, we can make a difference. The most simple solution is coming from a group of kids in the slums of Nairobi: using bicycles instead of cars!

"Wall za Hood" (the Walls of the Hood in Swahili), is the story of a mural in a notorious Kenyan slum. How did this mural come to be on this wall and why is it significant to Nairobi and to Kenya as a whole? In this short documentary, the minds behind this unique public art project answer these questions and share their understanding of what it all means.
