Kenya ha negociado y firmado varios acuerdos bilaterales con China, Ghana, la India, Corea, Nigeria y Venezuela, entre otros países, con miras a promover la cooperación cultural y propiciar la movilidad de los artistas. En los acuerdos se han incluido disposiciones encaminadas a respaldar la movilidad de los artistas y profesionales de la cultura hacia y desde Kenya, así como la circulación de bienes culturales, en particular material de producción cinematográfica y musical, mediante reducciones de impuestos.

En paralelo a estos acuerdos, las embajadas de otros países han contribuido a sufragar los gastos de viaje al extranjero de artistas kenianos. Por ejemplo, la Embajada de Suecia y el Instituto Sueco patrocinaron a doce artistas kenianos para que pudieran viajar a Estocolmo a fin de participar en actividades de fortalecimiento de capacidades en el sector de las industrias culturales y creativas.

Asimismo, el Ministerio de Cultura keniano ha propiciado la visita a Kenya de artistas extranjeros provenientes de Brasil, China, Francia, la India, Italia, Nigeria, el Reino Unido, el Senegal, Sudáfrica y Venezuela, ayudándoles a obtener visados y facilitándoles pases especiales y exoneraciones fiscales para los materiales e insumos necesarios. A la inversa, el Ministerio también ha proporcionado cartas de recomendación y certificados a artistas kenianos con el objeto de permitirles obtener los documentos de viaje necesarios para participar en exposiciones y festivales internacionales.

De esta manera, las autoridades kenianas están promoviendo la realización de tanto el objetivo 2 de la Convención como de los ODS 8 y 10. La libertad de movimiento se promueve mediante programas específicos y medidas de trato preferente que abarcan la movilidad (meta 10.a), y se garantiza la igualdad de oportunidades para los artistas y profesionales culturales de los países del Sur (meta 10.3). Asimismo, con la estrategia keniana de importaciones relativa a los bienes culturales se fortalecen las industrias culturales y creativas (meta 8.3).
