Nairobi: Monument in honor of children on the autism spectrum
Harambee Arts will be building a monument in Nairobi (on the grounds of the National Museum), out of found objects, in honor of those who have been discarded. The monument will be built by the California artist, Shrine, with the assistance of the children from the City Primary School's "Special Unit". It will be a place where people can come and be educated about the beauty of differently abled children, including those on the autism spectrum. We are collecting photos and artwork of children with differences worldwide to feature inside the monument.
