Get down at the Godown

The Africa Report - - QUARTER -

The re­vi­talised Ksh2bn ($19.8m) Godown Arts Centre is set to be a ma­jor boost to the cul­tural scene in Nairobi. Ground is due to be bro­ken on the new site in Au­gust, with con­struc­tion ex­pected to be com­pleted in two years. The centre was co-founded by ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Joy Mboya in 2003 and its new space prom­ises an au­di­to­rium, art gal­leries and stu­dios for the cap­i­tal city’s up-and-com­ing artists and per­form­ers.
