Robert Mũnũku, Mau Mau Arts

Robert Mũnũku has created Mau Mau Arts in Nairobi, Kenya, as a way to unite creative individuals after seeking out ways to fill voids he felt were left behind by foreign non-governmental organizations. Named after one of the groups who fought for Kenya’s independence, Mau Mau Arts believes that art is a powerful tool that can address social issues plaguing the country, such as corruption and poverty amongst others. Through workshops, street exhibitions and exchange programs, Mau Mau will connect creative artists with one another, building a network that hopefully expands in years to come.
