Where’s my space? – Ffotogallery & PAWA254

Where’s My Space? is a collaborative digital project that has brought together two organisations from Kenya and Wales, PAWA254 and Ffotogallery Wales, to create a virtual gathering place, or ‘Base Noma’ (to use a Kenyan expression) where young creatives from the partner countries can come together, show and tell, showcase their work to online audiences and share their ideas and lived experiences. The project is an opportunity for two dynamic cultural organisations to co-design and develop a unique online space for visual storytelling, working with emerging Kenyan and Welsh visual artists, musicians, poets and storytellers as the creative team.

This project has been made possible by the Go Digital Sub-Saharan Africa – Wales Grant awarded by British Council Wales.
