Slideluck is very excited to be doing its first show in the Rwandan capitol this autumn! On Friday, 14 November 2014, SLIDELUCK Kigali will be held on the roof of The Office on la Rue de Masaka, where attendees will celebrate Rwanda’s vibrant creative community.  

Slideluck is a non-profit organization based in New York City that is dedicated to building and strengthening community through food and art.  Since 2000, we have hosted potluck dinners combined with multimedia slideshows in over 75 cities worldwide and presented the work of roughly 10,000 artists. At each event, guests bring home-cooked dishes to share and the feast is followed by a slideshow of 20-25 local artists, ranging from emerging to very established.  Notable past Slideluckers include Chuck Close, Shepard Fairey, Elliott Erwitt, Spencer Tunick, Edward Burtynsky, Lauren Greenfield, Nadav Kander, Inez & Vinoodh, Bruce Davidson, Gregory Crewdson, Julie Blackmon, Alec Soth, Eugene Mirman, Alex Prager, Iwan Baan, Martin Parr, and DJ Spooky.
