www.si.se/swedenatkenya. On November 9-11, Mobile Life was partner of the Sweden@Kenya forum in Nairobi. Oskar Juhlin and Jinyi Wang was part of organising the fashion tech workshop and Maria Holm, was one of the organisers of the "Imagine my city" studio. The forum addressed issues such as how to unify the voice of the creative sector, how to identify and create effective collaborations, and the role of the creative and cultural sector in a complex, digitalised and interlinked world where ideas, values and visions are needed. Sweden@Kenya aims to bring tangible results in terms of intellectual inspiration, new contacts and networks, business opportunities as well as strengthened bilateral cooperation and exchanges between Sweden and Kenya.
On the 31st of March, 2017, the Mobile Life centre will close down - Mobile Death! But of course we will end with a bang! There will be a seminar & an exhibition & a party! Book the date and stay tuned for more information.
