Performance artists abound in Kenya. For decades dancers, acrobats, singers and musicians have toured Africa and abroad with their talents. However, like many of us performers around the world, it’s not always easy to find work. Project HAND UP! hires and train existing performance artists to put on Health Focused Events that use our “edutainment” curriculum.
It is important for all artists to find a way to explore their creativity while performing a service to their community. Addressing cultural issues has always been a cornerstone to performance art. We provide an outlet where performers can teach tangible, life saving, educational health concepts in a clear and concise way all the while expressing themselves artistically.
