Unite The People Festival was the first public gathering in Kisumu after the 2008 post election violence in Kenya. In 2012 One Vibe held its largest Unite The People Concert series, which created serious awareness about plans to establish the Education Music & Art Program (EMAP) in Kisumu as a creative hub for youth in the western region of Kenya. One Vibe worked with musicians from Jamaica, Seattle, Tanzania, and Kenya who not only performed, but also shared their stories with young people.
Unite The People Festival is part of our plan to earn income locally in Kenya for One Vibe programs. It also helps create awareness about the programs. We collaborate with local tour firms, and use our established networks to market the event. We involve other nonprofit organizations and companies as partners and sponsors.
