Our Performances :
WILBARO is the main edutainment production GWIAN did. Wilbaro is mixing different performing arts like dance, live music, drama, and acrobatics… to spread out GWIAN‘s vision about environmental issues. WILBARO (wheelbarrow) symbolizes the tool each human being uses through his life journey and his impact on earth destiny. WILBARO is a powerful scream of 45 artistes, fusing their talents to bring UNITY to combat Climate Change as the theme of the World Environment Day 2009 is: “Your planet needs you-United to combat Climate Change”. GWIAN artists were also quoting school’s Artworks for UNEP awards, a competition organised for the World Environment Day in collaboration with KOEE, Kenya Wildlife and NEMA.
Art is GWIAN‘s tool to combat environmental ignorancein the society and empower communities.
