SANAA STORY NOMINEE OF BAKE 2017 PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR -2 • • 1 • • • • 1 • • +2 SanaaStory is currently running three major creative projects. SanaaFashion is the merchandising franchise that presents a stylish yet meaningful touch of design to the fashion market. SanaaStory is a creative investment company. SanaaStory aims to invest in creative projects that spearhead bold and fresh initiatives in the urban artistic/creative culture, in order to make art a sustainable venture for artists. The SanaaStory began in 2014 when a group of young art enthusiasts wanted to create a cultural movement that would redefine how art spaces were viewed and perceived. Far from the traditional desk and chair in a dimly-lit room, art could also be created and experienced in the great outdoors, in downtown Nairobi and even amongst non-creatives. The first venture was a street art gallery on November 29th 2014. A crowd of about ten guests came to experience art installation on the road. Since then they have experienced growth and support that has seen them hold four more events in venues such as Michael Joseph Center and the Village Market. SanaaCulture is an event, which provides a platform that allows artists to display their creative works. The event also brings together non-artists and art enthusiasts for a chance to view, enjoy and purchase the different forms of creative works. Their ventures grew as they met creatives along the way that shaped their understanding and philosophy. From fashion to travel to music and to photography, their growth is continuously shaped by the collaborations and development of the artists they have worked with. www.sanaastory.co.ke SanaaWanderlust is a purpose and culture driven take to tourism. SanaaStory organizes budget trips to both SanaaWanderlust members and non-members, with an aim to immerse the travelers in a destination’s cuisine, culture and creative opportunities. 14 africanphotomagazine ISSUE 7 NOVEMBER 2017 15
