Creativity for jobs and leadership
MASK believes that creativity should be central to education.
A world where creativity is understood, valued, learned and practised.
To enable young people' long-term socio-economic success and sustainability.
MASK Creativity Clubs has trained up to 2,500 pupils and up to 60 teachers in more than 25 schools in Kenya. The MASK Prize has attracted more than 6,500 participants in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and South Africa; its exhibitions were viewed by more than 450,000 people in Kenya, UK and USA.
MASK SUCCESS STORIES
MASK has enjoyed a critical acclaim in the national and specialist press in Africa and beyond.
In 2006, London based artist Alla went to Kenya to paint. Working in rural communities, she began giving art workshops to children in schools and discovered that art and creativity education was limited. Her conviction that creativity is essential to children's development and future success led her to establish MASK (Mobile Art School in Kenya) in 2007.
"MASK has started something which others are now beginning
to recognise as an essential part of human growth and development."
