Nafasi Art Space

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Nafasi Art Space was founded in 2008 by a small group of Tanzanian artists with the aim of improving access to and widening participation in the visual arts in Tanzania. It is Tanzania's leading center for contemporary visual and performing arts. The art space is a vibrant community of artists, musicians, dancers, performers, and technicians, based in the industrial area of Mikocheni B, Dar es Salaam.

Nafasi Art Space hosts over 20 studios and workshop spaces, as well as multiple galleries and performance platforms. They offer regular programs including training and workshops, art talks, and public events, such as film screenings, exhibitions, concerts, festivals, and public art fairs. On average, Nafasi attracts more than 1000 visitors every month.

The platform provided by Nafasi has generated an organic ecosystem where the arts community can thrive, enabling artistic and cultural entrepreneurship for many young Tanzanians.
