Art Exhibitions

Art Residences

Collectors Hub

Art exhibitions run at Tafaria throughout the year either by our artist-in-residence after the end of each residency or by established and upcoming artists.

If you are a collector or an artist and you would like to exhibit (and sell) your work at Tafaria Centre for the Arts, present and register your work at Kuona Collective – Dennis Pritt Road, Lokoni Lane or at Tafaria Castle.

The residency programme is either fully sponsored by the Tafaria Foundation or self-sponsored. Both options are similar but those on self-sponsorship do not receive per diem, materials support and pay for meals and hotel accommodation. Further, self-sponsored residencies do not have to conform to our application criteria.

Residency application is open to visual artists, creative writers, performing artists, designers etc who need periods of time when they can isolate themselves from their lives to simply write/ideate.

The Collectors Hub provides collectors across the entire creative landscape with a public outlet for their work. If you are a collector looking for an outlet for your work, either for sale, temporarily or permanently exhibition, connect with us and let your collections inspire the world here.
