CHAP CHAP Graffiti

17 September: Graffiti  “Tales Behind Cans” with WACHATA Crew; Last Saturday was a thrilling event with the performances from hip hop artists Nash MC, Mansu Li, dirt bikers, and more. But the best of all was the afternoon Chap Chap workshop where the Wachata family taught different people how to do Graffiti. Now the walls at Nafasi are full of beautiful graffiti, thanks to the people who came and participated in the event.

Tarehe 17; Graffiti ‘’Tales Behind Canes’’ iliandaliwa na Wachata Crew ilikuwa poa sana Jumamosi iliyopita ambapo kulikuwa na wasanii wa muziki wa hip hop wengi kama Nash Mc na Mansu Li ambao waliimba vizuri sana. Pia Wachata walifundisha jinsi ya kufanya Graffiti na sasa kuta zote za Nafasi zimependezeshwa kwa Graffiti hizo.

Francois Knoetze's 'The Great Circle' is a playful exploration of the stories, spaces and objects encountered during his two month-long Artist Residency at Nafasi Artspace in Dar es Salaam. Through a series of photos, sculptural masks, performances and interviews, Knoetze has incorporated various vantage points (from the drone's eye in the sky to the stories that walk the city streets) to create a tangled portrait of the city, with its multitude of perspectives, histories and dreams. 'The Great Circle' was created in collaboration with local artists, dancers, tour guides and writers.
Usikose maonyesho kutoka kwa msanii aliyekuwa hapa kwa makazi ya muda mfupi Francois Knoetze. Francois ataonyesha baadhi ya kazi zake za Sanaa ambazoo amezifanya kwa muda wote aliokuwa hapa Nafasi Art space.
