MoTIV is East Africa’s biggest makerspace with the goal to create a sustainable ecosystem for artisans and makers in the creative space offering access to machinery, training, and a marketplace. MoTIV strongly believes that collaboration among a community of like minded creatives can deliver sustainability in an impactful way while adding to social economic growth of our country.
The Consciousness, Inner Fundamentals exhibition will explore the doctrine that all matter has a mental aspect while questioning the relationship between an individual, nature and reality. It questions our consciousness of the effects that we as a species have caused on nature, ourselves and reality due to our thirst for discovery and progress. The exhibition is open to the public until February 2020.
