About us:

The East Africa Art Biennale presents the best recent works of the East African artists together with few other international guest artists. 

The East Africa Art Biennale association is a non-profit, non-commercial, non-governmental organisation registered since January 2003 with the Tanzanian National Council of Arts (BASATA Serial No 1950) and depending solely on grants, donations and sponsorships for funds or for services from national and international organisations and companies.

The association promotes all the artists of East Africa and their productions, by sorting out and editing all information made available, and by diffusing it to all stakeholders in the art sector by means of the normal mail, publications, leaflets, videos, films and books as well as through electronic mail, by the establishment of a constantly updated website and by networking with interested partners in the region or abroad (art associations, trusts, funds, foundations, galleries and museums). The association organizes every two years (Biennale) a fine arts exhibition including visual and performing arts, with artists from the East Africa region. This biannual exhibition also includes a space opened to artists outside the East Africa region and coming from other parts of Africa as well as of the World.
