Accelerating Social Change

SpiceTalks “X”

SpiceTalks “X” is about ideas from the backyard of society independently organized by social change accelerators right at the backyard.

SpiceTalks runs community initiatives called SpiceTalks X throughout the year unearthing hidden issues at the margins of society and with local relevance. “X” means SpiceTalks happening right at the heart of the backyard of society.

At SpiceTalks we celebrate the diversity of those from the backyard of society, their energy, their vision and their focus to plant the spice as they are privy to social ills and have the natural spice to accelerate social change in their communities. Our mission is to bring out ideas from the backyard of society and to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to provoke dialogue right in the backyards.

SpiceTalks by Spice Without Borders, a registered international not for profit organization in Kenya under section 10 of the Non-Governmental Organizations Coordination Act, is a platform for exceptionally spicy ideas from the backyard of society, and a catalytic accelerator for intense social change.

The platform is devoted to transforming the society by the creative and critical voice of the people.

SpiceTalks’ vision is to create a platform that amplifies social ills, catalyzes and provokes the acceleration of social change through creative abilities to the whole world. We are on a mission to bring out ideas from the backyards of society to a platform where social change accelerators creatively provoke and inspire the general global citizenry.

To disrupt and chart a different course, we need as many talented individuals, from all walks of life, to play a role in promoting a more tolerant and just society that serves the many, not just the few. We seek individuals who have been faced with life challenges, overcome adversity and are passionate, talented social change accelerators, social entrepreneurs and community leaders to share their personal stories to a larger audience and ready to take immediate action for long-term impact.

All SpiceTalks speakers and organizers are volunteers, committed to nurturing and bringing out creative and spicy ideas from the backyard of society to the fore with a hope that it will make communities and the world a better and more inclusive place for all.
