Our House

Our House

Welcome to our house - built in art deco design that occured internationally in the 1930s and 1940s. We are proud to sustain this cultural heritage of architecture in Nairobi. In 2013, we established a library that is open for everyone who is interested in the publications of Heinrich Böll Stiftung or needs to do some research on our core themes: Gender Democracy, Sustainable Development, Dialogue & Civic Spaces, and Food Rights. Additionally, we offer an open space for groups, who need room for discussions.

Feel welcome to contact and visit us!

 

Our Vision & Mission: Facilitation - Inspiration - Dialogue - Partnership

The Ocean Atlas illustrates the important role played by the ocean and its ecosystems – not only for people living on the coasts but for all of us. It aims to give a current insight of the state and the threat of the seas, that are our livelihoods.

The Evolution of Kenyan Art and the Kenya Arts Diary

Supported by the Heinrich Boell Foundation and coordinated by Nani Croze of Kitengela Glass, the Kenya Arts Diary has become a popular annual art exhibition in Nairobi, Kenya and identified with the Heinrich Boell Foundation. The diary has built a new physical but portable space whose multi-functionality allows local artists to display their craft, advertise their skills, join a regional network, and find belonging.

First published in 2011, the Kenya Arts Diary is a catalogue - complete with descriptors - of photography, installations, oils, acrylics, patch-work quilts, wood, cement and scrap metal sculptures, some from “stitched found objects”. The Diary also carries artists’ bios and a directory that provides artists’ contacts and announces the range of collectives and studios where contemporary artists pursue their passions.
