Kenya: A Day of Cultural Expression At the National Museum

Countries represented in Kenya can now come together and share their cultural heritage and diverse cultural values. The Research Institute of Swahili Studies of Eastern Africa (RISSEA) hosted the first of such meetings to come at the National Museums of Kenya, Nairobi on Saturday afternoon.

The event was aimed at providing the Kenyan and international public with the opportunity to get to know and learn about different countries and cultures which are not well known in this part of the world.

"We want to make it a Kenyan public affair because it's similarity and diversity brings better understanding and tolerance of different cultures," said Dr Therese Schaerer, one of the organisers.

Participating countries including Mexico, Brazil and Switzerland were given 15 minutes to present aspects of their cultural, social, educational expression.
