WILBARO 2.0/GWIAN -Climate change is REAL!!!

Wilbaro 2.0 is a continuation of the first performance titled the same that was performed at our performing arts platform called Kipawa Sato, at the Kenya cultural Centre in 2008. Due to its tremendous success, we are the pioneer advocates of climate change in Kenya using performing arts.

Wilbaro 2.0  involves the use of different performing art forms like dance, live music, drama, and acrobatics… to spread out GWIAN‘s vision about environmental issues.. 

WILBARO 2.0 comprises of a powerful team of 20 artistes, fusing their talents to bring UNITY to combat Climate Change.
GWIAN is an association of artistes who have come together to develop artistic approach towards environmental education,  reduction of  poverty level through providing Eco-friendly activities that will uplift a common life in the community. GWIAN is more than awareness and educative program, but a fundamental development initiative.

 Talents are neglected in many regions. There is a great need to identify nature and develop these talents to international standards.
GWIAN with its projects works to create Eco-friendly opportunities that help educate, empower and grow the community to a healthy sustainable safe future.

By involving local artistes in our workshops and performances, GWIAN wants them to become Agent of Change. Artistes can spread information about global warming issues through their performing art and reach the entire population.

 A LETTER from Broadway;

Any performing artist from across the globe will agree with me that New York city is the Mecca of arts and culture.Not only does it have world class performances in its numerous theaters and circus halls it boasts of a population of more than eight million art enthusiasts from across the world.That's why "the others" seeks to establish contacts and collaborations that will ensure we share enjoy these great city and at the same time learn more about its role in development of world culture;This will be lessons that we can bring home to our "growing" and "infant"art Market.

 The Great architecture,state of art theater halls:Urbane culture gives inspirations to the performances seen in Broadway as much as it takes from them.The underlying prominence of the performances can be seen around the city,especially the Graffiti infested Manhattan and as a cultural practitioner,its clear to see that art is not only a way of life..ART is Life;and its reflected in all aspects of life around,including sports,tourism,food architecture et cetera. The wonderful mix creates a lifestyle that would only be described by a New York-er.

One can only wish that our arts culture would be reflected more in our biggest triumphs in sports,traditions,and environment.This would create an identity, not only our artworks but also reveal our potential in all these fields to the art market worldwide.This will it help market our culture/lifestyle/artworks internationally.
