The Uweza Art Gallery, located at Kamukunji grounds in Kibera, provides more advanced art students from our art classes as well as other Kibera-based artists with a space to create, market and sell their own original artwork.   The youth that have graduated from the art classes to the gallery are encouraged to consider art as a viable career option and to explore different  techniques, genres and mediums as they find their own artistic styles.

Artwork created at the gallery is sold both locally and abroad and the proceeds are used to fund the artists’ high school education or act as a source of income for older artists living in Kibera.  All participating artists that are high school age are currently enrolled in high schools throughout Kenya, fully supported by the sales of their art.
