Two years ago this month, a team from Kofisi Africa visited us at Uweza Art Gallery for the first time.
Since then, we have enjoyed a synergistic partnership that has seen Kofisi decorate their gorgeous co-working spaces around Nairobi with Uweza artwork. They have purchased more than 200 pieces of art from us, have provided a source of income and greater exposure for young artists, and have played a big role in keeping the gallery’s doors open during some tough times.
We have also been able to utilize Kofisi’s spaces for events and training sessions that support our overall mission of empowering young people in Kibera.
A few weeks ago, they visited us and put together this short film on our artists, gallery, and partnership. We’re so grateful to everyone at Kofisi for being such amazing partners. Here is to many more years of working together!
