The Final Push!

Dear backers and supporters,

Hope this finds you well! We are down to the final 2 days of our campaign! Just reaching out with a quick request to please help us continue to share and promote as we near the end... share on social media, repost our Instagram video, reTweet us, etc. Thanks for any help you can offer!

Thank you again for helping us get so far beyond our goal! Again, the stretch goals we are going for at this point are:

-Getting as many of our contributing photographers as possible to a book launch event in Nairobi. Many of our contributors still have not met each other! We will use this in-person meeting to establish mentoring relationships between our contributors who are just starting their photography careers and those who are more experienced.

-Exhibition costs for a quality print exhibition in Kenya's capital that can then also be used elsewhere in the region.

-A workshop of our theater program. Just as the book includes samples of the fascinating Instagram commentary our photos receive, we have also been experimenting with theater, using the Instagram comments as dialogue. We will work with local Kenyan actors and put on a series of performances during the Nairobi exhibition. The theater work compares foreign and local ideas of a place, and further interrogates perceptions of Africa and the way we communicate today.

All the best,

Peter / Everyday Africa
