Enos Nyamor
Cultural journalism
Kenya
01. February 2019 - 30. June 2019

Born 1991 in Nairobi/Kenya where he also lives and works.

From 2011 to 2014, he was a student at the United States International University-Africa (USIU-A) in Nairobi, where he was conferred with a bachelor’s degree in information systems and technology. He was a recipient of the USIU-A’s diversity scholarship.

In his junior year in college, while specializing in applications development and engineering, Enos developed an interest in cultural journalism – as a reaction to and interpretation of narratives in the physical and virtual environment. He is a self-taught cultural journalist. His passion for expression was discovered and nurtured at the Nation Media Group. From 2013 to 2014, he was a weekly columnist for the Daily Nation, East Africa’s leading newspaper in circulation. Since 2015, he has been practicing as a freelance journalist and writer. Some of his reports, reviews, and essays have appeared in C&, Business Daily Africa, Sunday Nation, Nachtkritik.de, and Africanah.

In December 2016, he was a student of the C& Critical Writing Workshop that was held in Nairobi. He was selected for the Kampala Art Biennale Critical Writing Workshop in August 2018. He was also a participant at Festival Theaterformen’s Cultural Journalism Workshop, which was held in June 2018, in Braunschweig/Germany. He was also a delegate at the Pro Helvetia Johannesburg’s Points of Engagement symposium in 2018.
