Presenting from Untethered Magic, the collective she helped found in Nairobi, Syowia Kyambi discusses the space and her recent works involving Kaspale, a character she devised as a tool to intervene in colonial spaces and to speak about difficult subjects.

This video formed part of our July 2021 Family Lunch: Home Delivery – a digital transformation of our treasured in-person Family Lunches, which allowed us to continue to share food, ideas and cultural practices throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Video shot by Kibe Wangunyu, Untethered Magic. Edited and produced by Kibe Wangunyu and Syowia Kyambi.
