  • Filling two floors of Alliance Française, the 2019 Diary is unprecedented for having more Kenyan artists’ work featured than ever before.
  • More than 70 artists are included, nearly all of them Kenyan, with a few from Uganda and Tanzania and a few Kenyan residents.
  • This is the second time that the Diary launch is accompanied by a public exhibition of the artworks included in the actual diary.

The Kenya Arts Diary has been coming out every year since 2011, ever since Kitengela Glass founder-mother Nani Croze gathered together a few Kenyan art lovers and designed the first Diary.
