The group is made up of Faizal Mostrixx (Ug), Hibotep (Ug), K15 (UK), Karun (Ke), Labdi (Ke), Lex Amor (UK), Lynda Dawn (UK) and Maxwell Owin (UK).
Funded by the British Council’s New Art New Audiences initiative, the eight artists got together late last year for a week-long writing camp at Nairobi’s Supersonic Africa studio.
