Community Mobilization and
Here, we gather citizens, local authorities, and other development partners to discuss a range of issues we are working on. Citizens can pick the brains of the knowledgeable and share their own firsthand knowledge of problems they face.
Additionally, following the showing of local films, local communities engage in open dialogue with their elected officials and other decision-makers to discuss and find solutions to the problems brought up by the films. We also use art performances to mobilize the citizens to take in our initiatives
The Kivulini Storytellers
Since we believe in the power of youth to drive change, MEDEA strives to empower and create space for young artists to explore and nurture their creative careers. The Kivulini Storytellers, which translates roughly as Under The Shade Storytellers, is a free art space where we provide artists with the tools and knowledge of the art eco system that they need to succeed in the art world while also telling human-interest stories from a human rights perspective. The storytellers include visual artists, filmmakers, singers, painters, and performing arts enthusiasts.
