 November 2014, 11am

The CHALLENGE is to complete a 10 km group walk between the leading art galleries, and to find an artwork in each gallery that reflects the essence of African Art.  To join, please email:

The Great WALK of Art is a sponsored walk in aid of the MASK PRIZE, a creativity competition for young people in Africa.  As education that promotes creativity is limited in schools in Africa, the MASK PRIZE provides a national platform for young people to nurture their creativity (resourcefulness, inventiveness and imagination).  The MASK PRIZE is partnered by the Radio Africa Group and exhibits at the Saatchi Gallery in London.  Currently, the Saatchi Gallery exhibits the 2014 MASK PRIZE until 5 October.  The Award Ceremony of the 2014 MASK PRIZE was held at Nairobi University in May 2014. Prizes were awarded  by Dr Manu Chandaria CBE who said: "Survival will be very difficult in the 2st century, and without creativity it will be not possible."  More on the 2013 MASK PRIZE and 2014 MASK PRIZE.

The Great WALK of Art is organised by a UK charity 1128734, MASK.  The walk is curated and guided by Alla Tkachuk, Founder of MASK.  Alla writes 'How to Look at Art' column in the Kenyan newspaper The Star.
