Picha Mtaani joins Glass House Serious Request (Red Cross, Ghetto Radio)
The Amani Tour returned to Nairobi with a one-week exhibition on Moi Avenue, leading up to Christmas Day.
The special open air event was held in conjunction with Red Cross and Ghetto Radio, as part of an event dubbed the Glass House Serious Request, with the theme for this year being VOTE 4 KENYA, VOTE 4 PEACE.
Serious Request is an annual Ghetto Radio event held at the Hilton grounds that connects Kenya to other parts of the world via a social program and a spectacular entertainment set-up. Three DJ / presenters are locked up for 6 days in a glass house without food, focusing on a social issue. This year, Ghetto Radio listeners in Kenya will be asked to come to the Glass House, view the Picha Mtaani exhibition, donate blood, and request their favourite track, while being encouraged to vote for peace.
The Picha Mtaani photo exhibition, documentary screening, moderation and counselling were a significant part of the experience for members of the public visiting the venue, while Kenya Red Cross will coordinate blood donation activities that will be conducted across the road on the side of the Hilton bus stop.
The event ran for 24hrs a day from Dec 19th to Dec 24th, attracting thousands of participants.
