But what has been showcased so far is not the best we can do. I have come across content so good but because the creator is not known well enough, not so many people get the privilege of enjoying the content. I have seen actors and actresses better than some of those on Hollywood, I have heard songs more moving and meaningful than those being played left right and centre, I have watched captivating films albeit short but good enough to keep one at the edge of their seats. I think we need better structures. And if someone can come up with a conference where people can showcase their content and later help support artists with mind blowing content, We will be moving somewhere. 4 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Roussoss Demisse Nairobi, Kenya 1 Questions 2 Answers 0 Best Answers 190 Points View Profile Roussoss Demisse East Africa Added an answer on December 18, 2018 at 1:44 pm The art in Kenya still has a long way to go to battle in the international arena. Most of our arts are entertainment based rather than being educative. Music specifically should be a way we communicate in the society, sharing out our experiences, educating our societies and more. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp wanjeri_thea 2 Questions 80 Answers 3 Best Answers 2,209 Points View Profile wanjeri_thea East Africa Added an answer on October 26, 2018 at 9:52 am Arts pay big time but only a few of the top creme get to access the benefits.

First of all, there’s no industry. Artists are starving and I wouldn’t advise anyone to get into art for the money. Just do it for fun and leisure otherwise you will be in for a rude shock. 😛 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Sam Muregz Nairobi, Kenya 1 Questions 9 Answers 1 Best Answers 244 Points View Profile Sam Muregz East Africa Replied to answer on October 22, 2018 at 3:54 pm If we were to have a hypothetical amount, how much would one require so that we can say art pays? (Or how much does an ordinary middle-income earner in Kenya earn?) 3 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Notify me of new posts by email.
