If you haven’t been to Creatives Garage in Nairobi, you simply must attend something they’re holding in person once all this perpetual COVID nonsense blows past us into distant memory. They’re a lovely spot for congregating and networking with other creatives, and tend to throw delightful parties to boot.
Seeing as how we’re all currently locked into rooms, staring at walls and beginning to see visions of the future and past in concurrent perpetual time loops- it may be high time to get some new arts into your life. Creatives has this covered, throwing an ambitious online festival (aptly called the Lock In Festival) that has been ongoing for the better part of two weeks now, featuring sets of live music, panel discussions, even sessions of guided meditation.
They are an assurance that you will never get as bored as you could (and we all know what you’re capable of left to such devices) and, much more importantly to have a direct line to support a larger community within the creative sector by giving through the online ‘tip jars’, buying albums, advance purchasing content, pieces, and the smattering of goods that you should definitely stock up on in advance for the inevitable post corona bliss.
They have more webinars and performances going up live all week.
For up to date info look to their Facebook page first:
Just for a quick taster- here’s a couple of highlights to some of the features from the Creatives Garage Lock In Festival from the last few weeks.
Enjoy, support and stay safe out there.
