Program Description: Multi-arts methodology and journey of liberation with indigenous people as they respond to myriad challenges ranging from ethnically instigated violence to armed militia fighting for land rights.

Abstract:  An experiential workshop that will see the participants literally “walk the journey of the oppressed.The case study presents the journey of one community in Mt. Elgon Kenya who went through atrocities ranging from destruction of properties, to rape and defilement and killings of people, as different clans and ethnic communities in Mt. Elgon region at the border of Kenya and Uganda went through the worst nightmare of their lives. Fighting for community land rights, the conflict escalated to genocide levels, as different communities took up arms to defend their rights to land against encroachment from other communities. This is perhaps one of the worst human rights violations that Kenya has experienced in the recent past. Which  lead to the worst human rights violations.

Challenging Questions
1. How can we use theatre  of the oppressed in conflict transformation?
2. How can we share our stories/ experiences in kenya with countries?
3. How can indigenous people  respond to myriad challenges ranging from ethnically instigated violence to armed militia fighting for land rights in the republic of Kenya?
