A few words about your artistic journey

My artistic journey began in 2016 when I got inspired by the beauty and art that existed around the community I lived in. The beauty was in the people and their activities, so I decided to start documenting their stories to share with the rest of the world these photo stories.

How long have you been an artist ?

I have been an artist for five years now, I started working professionally in 2016 todate.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

I applied for this grant to enable me document the plight of the children in my community during the COVID 19 pandemic to raise awareness about their rights. The grant will facilitate my movement around the community and pay for filming accessories that might be required in the filming and photo documenting process.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

My artistic objective after the residency is to establish dialogue about children’s rights with the community leadership and create more opportunities for creating informative photo stories in future.
