Kuona Trust is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 1995 at the National Museum of Kenya to serve visual artists and has since worked with over one thousand five hundred artists giving them skills and opportunities to advance themselves whilst increasing the profile and role of the visual arts in Kenya. We are one of the oldest organisations in East Africa to provides skills, training and opportunities exclusively to visual artists.

We do this through providing artists with studio spaces, art training workshops, exhibitions and we organize local and international workshops, residencies and artist led outreach projects for local communities. We have just moved to a new space in Hurlingham, Nairobi with studio space for around 20 artists. Visit us to meet artists, buy their work and find out about regular exhibitions, art classes, film showings, artist-led outreach projects and international residencies and workshops.
