The Nest Collective is a multidisciplinary Kenyan squad whose work spans across film, music, fashion, visual arts and literature with collaboration at the heart of their practice. 

The Collective has been creating art, breaking boundaries and inspiring new modes of seeing since 2012. Their work has travelled from Nairobi across the world, securing them multiple accolades and exhibitions along the way — Berlinale Teddy AwardsBest of Africa and the African Diaspora Award, Rapid Lion  (The South African International Film Festival) and Best Original Music (Berlin International Fashion Film Festival) among others.

A conversation between Nest member Njoki Ngumi and Johannesburg writer, Nkgopoleng Moloi was published in partnership with Let’s Be Brief in November 2019.
