What you'll do

Find inspiration in the location that turned me into a storyteller. I'll tell you about growing up in Kibera and how this community made me who I am today. Afterward, we'll find a story of our own and learn how to mold it into a short film together. We'll create a magical script based off of our one-hour trip through Kibera's creative spaces and community. Then we'll film it and do a quick edit.

Where you'll be

Kibera, my hometown neighborhood, where I get a lot of inspiration. With a population of approximately 1 million, this area will be our film studio for the day. We'll visit Maasai Mbili Art Centre, Creatives Garage, Bone Craft, an art gallery in Kamukunji Grounds, and the train tracks.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests ages 18 and up can attend.

What to bring

bring personal camera if you would like

More tips

Bring your own film gear or beverage if you're comfortable this way. You'll be visiting poor areas of town, so you'll need to dress comfortably and modestly, avoid taking valuables, and be alert as normal. We'll be in a group so if we stick together and you listen to your host then there's no reason you should have a problem..
