When I think of art, I think of all the things that bring us together as a humanity. I think of nature – in its various depictions. I think of culture and the vast interpretations of it. I think of beauty through its various forms. The thing is, art is all around us, it just takes one to slow down and look around. “Slow down, don’t dance so fast; time is short, the music won’t last.” I have come to realise that the appreciation of art is the appreciation of life itself, and as we rush hurriedly through our days, it is important – every once in a while – to take a step back, slow down (or stop completely) and internalise the things about us. “Take time to hear to the music – before the song is over.” So this month, as we shall do for many more Octobers to come, we talk art and we embrace art. As an introduction, we take you through an intricate guide on all places ‘artsy’ in Nairobi. If you are the type of person that cannot be bothered about the opening of the latest bar/lounge, but instead are looking for something more visually and mentally stimulating to occupy your free time, this guide is just for you. We cover everything from theatre and dance to art galleries and museums – and believe me, this is just the tip of the ice berg of what Nairobi, and indeed East Africa, has to offer. This October, celebrate art with COUTURE Africa and support local, regional and international artisans by buying one of their pieces, or simply going out to watch them in their various mediums. It is with this in mind that I also turn your attention to the African Heritage Mansion that is currently under threat of demolition by the Government because of the Railway Line upgrade. If you have never been to this amazing structure rife with African history down in Mlolongo – it is a must-visit. That said, we wish the African Heritage team all the best of success in Saving The African Heritage House - a true icon in cultural history.
