Challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic hit the cultural sector in Tanzania extremely hard, leading to drastically reduced income and opportunities for practicing artists. While artists and audiences return, Nafasi is looking for ways to support artists safely and respectively according to social distancing regulations. Our current spaces are not capable to facilitate the growth of members moving through Nafasi. We are running out of working spaces and we need your help!

Solution

To continue spreading our impact of creativity, education and connections we have raised 4,500$ to build new spaces. We imagine these areas as new hubs for our trainings and community. Envisioning an academy and networking space that can facilitate our platform and amplify Nafasi's impact. Allowing us to host current artists and growing members safely in indoor and outdoor spaces.

Long-Term Impact

These spaces will help us to meet the future growth of the organisation, and allow us to host more people and foster new collaborations safely. contributing to the resilience and impact of our organisation. We would like for our members to have a place they can continue to connect and grow after their trainings. Creating our digital art lab will allow us to diversify our programmes and lead in the rising digital contemporary art scene in Tanzania.
