About Sanaa

Sanaa, a not-for-profit multidisciplinary cultural arts collective based in Adelaide, champions intercultural understanding through art and creativity. The organisation emphasises the transformative power of art in bridging cultural divides, and offers a variety of arts programs to the community, including street art, music, performances, workshops, storytelling, festivals, exhibitions, and fashion shows. Founded by Exhibition curator Victoria Lewis and inspired by a 2015 journey to East Africa to document the positive impact of art in communities, Sanaa was born from encounters with artists in Nairobi – Kenya, and Tanzania’s Moshi and Dar es Salaam. These artists, ranging from political street artists and fashion designers to ballet dancers and visual artists, were actively using their art to drive positive change within their communities. Motivated by these experiences, Sanaa was established to connect Australian communities with other cultures and experiences through the celebration and education of art. Since it was founded in 2015, Sanaa has expanded to showcase artists from diverse cultural backgrounds, featuring talents from Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Iran, and numerous African countries in its festivals and programs. Beyond this, Sanaa is committed to creating educational opportunities for students in regional areas, working in collaboration with Aboriginal artists in regional Australian locations such as Port Augusta and Whyalla. Moreover, Sanaa has initiated collaborations with First Nations artists in both its mural program and music festival, broadening its scope and impact in celebrating cultural diversity and artistic expression. By fostering greater social cohesion through creative expression, Sanaa plays a critical role in closing cultural gaps within Australia.

 

Sanaa is excited to partner with Quadrant Gallery to present a curated collection of artworks from African artists we have collaborated with over time. Featuring talents from Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and Nigeria, this exhibition highlights the creativity and innovation of some of the continent’s foremost and rising visual artists.
