Future of Return

The SHIFT collective and Down River Road partnered together to curate an anthology of short stories by Kenyan writers imagining the return of cultural objects.

On July 25, 2022 tens of wonderful people came together around this set of seven stories at Cheche Books in Nairobi. Writers read from their stories. We played. Some of the ways we responded to or shunned the ideas and questions raised by the theme are included here.

To our co-conspirators, artists and curators for this zine: stay radical.
