“Founded in 2012 by brothers and self-taught painters Emmanuel Nkuranga and Innocent Nkurunziza, Inema Arts Center spurs creativity for personal, social and economic growth. Nkurunziza and Nkuranga started Inema in order:
To tap the untapped potential of art in Rwanda.
To use the creative expression as a way to bring the community and country alive.
To provide exposure to creative people and to create opportunities for Rwanda’s most underserved communities while using creativity for a productive livelihood.
Today, Inema Arts Center has become a beacon in Rwanda for cultivating creative expression. Inema Arts Center is a collective of Rwandan creative artists. At its core, Inema Arts Center provides space for 5 artists in residence to explore their creative talent.” – Inema Art Center
