New Orleans, LA

The New Orleans-Nairobi Artivist Exchange is a two-week exchange program designed for activists using art and creative cultural production as their primary mediums as tools for social justice across the Diaspora. The purpose of the exchange is for artivists to explore how two cities, New Orleans and Nairobi, have made use of art-based resistance through a week of cultural immersion, exploration and education and another week consisting of the creation of a public art project(s) to inspire sustained dialogue and collaboration between creatives and activists in both host cities.
