Anti-Stigma Poster Project

Partners: Peace Corps, Kigali Hope Association, Rwanda Biomedical Center

Date: May - September, 2014

Location: 25 Districts of Rwanda

This was Kurema’s biggest project in 2014, lasting over 6 months, involving over 70 support partners and reaching 100s of kids in 26 of Rwanda’s 30 districts. Peace Corps, volunteers, peer educators, and community health workers were trained in a series of cascade training events. They were taught to implement arts based health awareness workshops about HIV/AIDS; fighting against stigma and discrimination, and social advocacy.Across the country, students created anti-stigma posters that were submitted and exhibited in a district level competition. Two talented district-level winners were invited to an exciting weekend at the national championship held in Kigali.For some participants, this was their first time traveling from home in a rural province to the capital city; for nearly all participants, it was the first time seeing their artwork displayed in a proper art gallery! The two winning posters were given the honour of being distributed en masse in The New Times newspaper.
