We mobilise people, advertise and coordinate facilities to allow exhibition to take place. Our promotion extend to film, fashion, music and comedy. We organise concerts, film screening and fashion shows. Kenya artists, film makers and designers are regularly exhibiting their work through our association – Kenya Film Club, which we launched in Nairobi december 2010. 2012 highlights include queens Diamond Jubilee, The Kenya President Honourable Mwai Kibaki investment summit and Diaspora Conference, The Kenya Olympics House. We also have worked with barclays bank Kenya launching Barclays bank PINGIT app. Our vision is to have a Kenyan TV station in UK that will connect Diaspora with Kenya and that will showcase content by Kenyan producers.
