No longer putting society at the service of art and much less at the service of monopolies of the elite, but instead art at the service of the society, at the service of the weakest, at the service of children, at the service of the sick, at the service of the vulnerable and at the service of all those who cry for the vindication through the spirit of their human condition and raising up of their dignity.

I as your Chair along with Andrew Ngurumi as co Chair, Dennis Muraguri as Treasurer, Cyrus Kabiru as co Treasurer, Michael Musyoka as Secretary, Sebawali Sio as co Secretary and board member Kevin Odour have come together to create a space for artists, by artists. A platform where we can thrive, a space that is of inclusion, a space were we can create and implement policy, fight for better rights for artists, in terms of being legitimately accepted into society and help society to not exclude us. To not keep us in the margins but to see us as equal in terms of our job value, to be included in terms of bank loans, to be included in terms of health care, to be protected by the law rather than abused by it. To do this we formed this association to have a collective voice, to have a collective strategy, for the betterment of our future.
