Our Locals' Tip: The Kuona Trust have an excellent library of Art books which outsiders can access for a small fee.
The Kuona Trust is a centre for visual arts in Kenya. It offers a contemporary art space for Kenyan artists. With exhibitions, artists studios, outreach programs, events, international exchange etc.
The Centre is a collection of about 20 studios where visual artists and sculptors are able to work in a creative environment. The chance to be part of the Kuona Trust is fiercely competitive with a selection committee having the difficult decision of choosing who is part of the group. The result is a gathering of some of Kenya's best talent.
The centre offers a library of good quality Art books to inspire and motivate the artists. The Kuona Trust is open to the public and it's a great chance to buy directly from the artists.
The Kuona Trust is in a fairly central position and is easy to get to from the City Centre, the YaYa Centre, Junction and Westlands. All these areas are about 20 minutes drive away.
