More Kibera rooftops gain faces of women

More Kibera rooftops gain faces of women

2013 Sep 5 - 03:36


In July 2013, 4000 square meters of images representing faces of the women from Kibera, Kenya, were printed on vinyl to protect the roof of the community against the rain. This is not part of the Women Are Heroes project that was realized 4 years ago and that is still visible on this image.

Every year since 2010, a team goes back to Kibera to continue the legacy of the project and cover more rooftops for the community. This is done with no autorisation except the one of the community and with no other financing than the one raised through the sale of artworks...

 As one woman from the slum said "Art can be useful".
