Flora Nguye Mutere

Flora Nguye Mutere is a multimedia designer who obtained her Bachelor of Education in fine art from Kenyatta University, Nairobi, and Master of Arts in computer art from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) USA. Flora is a PhD candidate leveraging digital heritage design processes to take a considered look at infusing debate, research, and story-telling around the forging of identity and belonging to landscapes. In her practice, she aims first to speak with inhabitants past and present, create a sense of belonging in an aesthetic of African memory, addressing notions of how, why, and who has the right to belong to the urban spaces. Flora is part of the cohort of the 2023 African Museology Exchange of the U.S. Department of State’s Cultural Heritage Center (CHC) and the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art (NMAfA) and Office of International Relations (OIR), and a 2022-2023 SSRC Next Gen Social Sciences in Africa (Next Gen) Research Proposal Fellow.
