Matasia Arts Center is a multidisciplinary art hub in Matasia, Kenya, whose mission is to promote artistic excellence and intercultural exchange. Founded on the belief that art-making is an essential part of a vibrant, just and free society, the center showcases and supports the creation of contemporary art and fosters collaboration and interaction between artists locally, nationally and internationally.
Our vision to promote excellence in the arts is premised on the belief that the arts are central to the growth of individuals and communities. At the heart of the activities of the center is a desire to break cultural barriers locally, regionally and globally. We believe that the arts can bring people together and promote appreciation for cultural diversity.
The center strives to achieve its mission through three programs; an artists-in-residence program, workshops and lectures, and an annual international artists' conference dubbed "Indaba".
