One of the main aims of the Festival of Art and Education “DUOS” is the exchange of knowledge and experience between artists from Szczecin (Poland) and Kilifi County (Kenya). Artists work in DUOS in Kilifi and also in collaboration with the local community. Afterwards DUOS expand their projects in Szczecin and present them at National Museum in Szczecin.
The artists meet in DUOS in various disciplines: painting, sculpture, dance, performance, music, design, film, photography, architecture, and social sciences. DUOS work together for a period of three weeks, including the first week to establish cooperation and define a joint project, and the next two weeks to develop it, together with a focus group consisting of students, local youth, and practitioners (fashion designer and photographer).
