FOLKDAYS Nº 240
Stephen Kine is both a design innovator and social activist. His creations, be they bone or brass, are exceptional, infused with hints of international modernism as well as the aesthetic symmetry and balance of tribal designs and motif. Stephen runs an organization called the Kibera Arts Center, which is located in one of the biggest slums of Nairobi. His goal is to grow his business to be able to not only support his family, but underprivileged youth in his community and their families as well. He hopes the skills they learn working with him will help them start their own businesses one day.
