Note to the Editor;
- “So many books talk about Rwanda by non-Rwandans and most of the
times Rwandans have no idea what are in those books, are we are
portrayed etc. We have no control over our image. I think it is important
that people in Rwanda, regardless of their background, have access to
content about the country and the region at large. Here is a book written
by a child of rwanda and that was translated in over 30 languages. It is
only logic that it would be translated in Kinyarwanda and radio being the
most accessible medium in Rwanda it only makes sense that we make
accessible to the majority of the people. Democratizing literature and not
make it only for the elites” ~ Natacha Muzira, Uwayoboye Umushinga
- « Igitabo GAHUGU GATO kigaruka ku mateka y’urubyiruko rwo mu
karere k’ibiyaga bigari. Amateka ya Gaby uvugwa muri iki gitabo asa
n’aya bana nkawe bavukijwe ubuto n’amateka y’urugomo n’intambara
byaranze aka karere. Dutangira umushinga wo guhindura iki gitabo,
twabonaga ko hakubiyemo inyigisho nyinshi ku rubyiruko ariko
tugasanga urulimi rw’igifaransa igitabo cya Gael Faye cyanditsemo
rushobora kuba imbogamizi kuri bamwe. Niyo mpamvu twahisemo
gusohora iki gitabo mu kinyarwanda ariko n’a none kuko ibitabo
by’impapuro bitagera kuri bose dufata umwanzuro wo kurema iki gitabo
mu buryo butatu. Igitabo cy’impapuro, icya ebook, gishobora gusomwa
kuri Telefoni cyangwa mudasobwa n’igitabo gikoze mu majwi (audio-
book) cyane cyane Kuko iki cy’amajwi gishobora kugera kuri bose
ndetse n’abatarakandagiye mu ishuri, kandi cyoroshye gukwirakwizwa
mu gihugu hose, twifashishije umuyoboro wa radio. » ~ Dorcy

Artists for Joint Experimental Performance
December 03, 2019
Eight Artists are to stage up a collaborative performance cautioning, while drawing contrast and comparative narratives about the environment. The event is to conclude a four-week Arts residency at Rwanda Arts Initiative in partnership with Kigali Goethe Institut, facilitated by guest Artists Alla Popp and Sarah Wenzinger.
The event themed Relocating Narratives
will be taking place at the Rwanda Arts Initiative space in Kimihurura on
December 7, will feature works by Artists Greta Ingabire, Yannick N. Kamanzi,
Louise Mutabazi, Kivumbi King, Eric 1key, Natacha Muziramakenga, Alla Popp and
Sarah Wenzinger , all of various art forms, who all seek to explore different
levels of perspective and perception in a non-linear conversation about the
connection of past, present, future and the transformative possibilities of
reassembling narratives for the future environment.
Linear timelines are cancelled. We are surrounded by voices, thoughts, organisms, systems of order, master plans, micro cosmos, the invisible, the past, the living world, 4.55 billion years old stones, and all that we cannot recognize. How do we “make sense”, how can we communicate with it, how can we think of a common future?
Augmented reality, sound, poetry, and performance allow us to discover and link new narratives beyond linearity. We invite you to an evening without order and answer. Together we want to raise new questions and practice transformation: It remains complicated.

“It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.”
