I am Joshua Wera, a passionate storyteller, filmmaker, and advocate for community-driven change. I'm embarking on a transformative journey to pursue a graduate degree in Communication (Art and Design) at the prestigious Royal College of Art (RCA) in 2024.
Growing up in a small fishing town in Kenya, I discovered the transformative power of education and storytelling. Despite challenges, my fascination with storybooks and photography shaped my path towards filmmaking. With an undergraduate degree from Korea National University of Arts, I've collaborated on diverse art projects, driven by a belief that artistic expression thrives through collaboration. Now, I'm seeking your support to make this next step possible. The RCA's Communication MFA program aligns well with my vision of collaborative artistry, empowering artists to understand and narrate untold stories. My goal is to bring these lessons back to Kenya, enriching our communities and nurturing emerging talent through AFROHADA, a creative group which I am currently co-leading.
Your generosity will directly contribute to covering my tuition, boarding, and sustenance throughout my studies in the UK. Together, we can bridge cultures, amplify unheard voices, and shape a brighter artistic landscape in Kenya.
