Changamka Na Sanaa Furbishes Kisumu with Graffiti

Visual communication, specifically graffiti took center stage this past week in Kisumu County as the Changamka Na Sanaa initiative creatively decorated various parts of the County with instructive, informative messages.

The initiative which seeks to urge women and young people to come out in large numbers to vote and maintain peace is using graffiti as a tool to send the message about the need to look beyond the vote.

In Kisumu, Changamka na Sanaa furbished graffiti pieces in Muhoroni, Kondele and Nyalenda B. It also involved a pledge wall where young people imprinted their hand prints as a sign of commitment to voting and maintaining peace during the August 8th General Elections.
