International Art Exchange Project

The Afrikanation International Art Exchange is an artistic collaboration amongst artists in Somaliland/Somalia and Ethiopia. A variety of artists including painters, musicians and filmmakers have created artwork themed Family Rituals and Traditions. This mix of artistic collaboration, artist interviews and art exhibition provides a perfect opportunity for Somali and Ethiopian artists and communities to "meet." We are happy Prince Claus Fund supported this project with our goal to prelude lasting partnerships between Somali and Ethiopian artists and communities.
