About HashtagKen100

4EsKenya’s Story in a 100 Objects’ seeks to engage Kenya’s youth, especially those in the Diaspora, with the wealth of their cultural heritage telling Kenya’s Story in 100 Objects. It will guide a body of young men and women on a journey that will reconnect them with their extraordinary, yet largely neglected, patrimony.

The project explores the various forms and types of Kenyan art and objects, the people that produced it, the ideas that promote it, and their functions within social, cultural and spiritual contexts. What we now refer to as traditional art of Kenya was produced as a necessary part of everyday life and it is impossible to understand and appreciate Kenya’s different communities without understanding their heritage mostly manifest in the objects.
