The Global Trade Center [GTC] of Nairobi’s new skyline has launched a campaign called “My Great Nairobi Photo Exhibition” to celebrate the city’s rich history as Kenya commemorates sixty years of independence. The exhibition will showcase Nairobi’s skyline, people, architecture, landmarks, road networks, infrastructure, and rich culture, allowing visitors to journey through time from the city’s small, dusty town days to its current bustling cosmopolitan and modern state. The gallery will also feature the city’s history from the late 1800s to the present day.
The primary aim of the “My Great Nairobi Photo Exhibition” is to preserve Nairobi’s rich history, educate the public, and celebrate the limitless possibilities of the world’s growth and development, while also recognizing the talent and creativity of photographers who have contributed to capturing the city’s evolution. Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja noted during the launch that the initiative would remind Kenyans of the beauty and heritage of their country, the resilience of its people, and the growth and diversity of the city
The “My Great Nairobi Photo Exhibition” campaign is an interactive event that invites public participation through the sharing of memories and stories of Nairobi on the official website. GTC hopes to showcase Nairobi’s rich history and development while introducing its HOPSCA project, the Nairobi Global Trade Center.
Photographers who submit the best images will be recognized with awards and honored at the official opening of the Nairobi Photo Exhibition Gallery. The campaign’s partners include The Nairobi County, Kenya National Archives, National Museums of Kenya, Nairobi Gallery, and the Mo Amin Foundation. GTC invites everyone to participate in this unique opportunity to be a part of Nairobi’s history and contribute to creating a lasting tribute to the city.
