Matatu

|http://www.matatu.co/

///This is who we are

The Kenyan matatu, the Thai tuk-tuk, and the Brooklyn dollar van are means of public transport used by people around the world. Often decorated with popular icons and sounds, matatu’s offer not only a means of travel, but access to another world. MATATU replicates these vehicles as a mode of collective and publicly accessible transportation, rooted in local community and global diasporas, that shuttles audiences from one arthouse experience to the next.

We are filmmakers, poets, writers, geographers, musicians, and we are working from within and from without. We are storytellers. We are creative placekeepers impassioned by the belief that everyone has a spectacular story regardless of age, geographical bounds, race, sexual preference, and socio-economic status and that story represents the sacred agreement among otherwise disparate communities.

MATATU is a fiscally sponsored project of Intersection for the Arts. Our programming is made possible by the generous support of Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and KQED.
