Fine Art and Limited edition pieces designed by young people from Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya.

My Start project has been working in Kakuma since 2011, fostering the creative talent and drive of many individuals through their Art, film and photography workshops. The Art work, exhibited in London schools and public spaces, has connected this remote camp to a wider audience. Over the years an aspiring and selected group of artists have emerged and become recognised as the My Start Art Collective. A number of themes have arisen though the Art, born from the refugee experience. These themes have formed the mini-collections the art has been curated under.

“The person with creative literacy — a basic understanding of the mental, emotional, and sociological tools used for creative thought and communication — is able to find purpose and apply meaning to her world rather than having meaning handed down and purpose assigned to her.” Dustin Timebrook
