The NEST is a Kenyan multidisciplinary art space that serves as a functional playground for artists, thinkers and curious minds. We have a number of concurrent projects (in different mediums – video, audio, interactive events) slated to go into production shortly, and we’re looking for a freelance production coordinator to join our production team from the 10th of August 2013 for a period of three (3) months.
Generally, we’re looking for someone who can juggle multiple projects and rein them in on time and within budget. More than that, we’re looking for someone with an unorthodox, DIY-approach to problem solving. Most of all, we’re looking for someone who enjoys gently but firmly handling laid-back artists, finger-wagging accountants and suppliers who swear they’re 5 minutes away – all in service of the creation of cool new sounds, images and happenings.
Your work will include coordinating production schedules, location scouting, organizing auditions and managing a database of cast, crew and facilities. Some experience would be great, but we’re open to working with beginners with a love for the arts, some guts and a sense of adventure.

AfriGadget are in the process of setting up a network of video journalists from across Africa to produce stories, which will be made available on the website as well.

AfriGadget is graduating from the small screens of laptops and smart phones to the larger screens of broadcast television. The production company Made in Africa TV is taking AfriGadget to the East African airwaves to inspire millions of viewers to become active creators of new and ingenious products, themselves. Made in Africa TV is an East African social enterprise producing mass media with a social impact.
Each episode of AfriGadget TV will consist of five thoughtful stories from around the region, highlighting remarkable and unexpected hardware innovations by East Africans. These stories are inspiring mini-documentaries, portraying young and old, men and women, as well as high and low-tech innovators and their products.
Made in Africa TV plans to produce AfriGadget as separate programs in Kenyan, Tanzanian and Ugandan television markets. A local presenter will host the program and introduce the correspondents and their stories. Combined, these stories offer a unique opportunity to discover a wide range of innovations, new products and different approaches to the same goal. The program will be broadcast on a weekly basis.
