What Is UJUZI?

UJUZI is a collaboratively produced alternative learning program for East African artists. UJUZI adopts a holistic approach to artistic education encompassing creative research methodologies and contextual thinking to develop conceptual and aesthetic rigour. The program is delivered through a partnership between the Nairobi Contemporary Art Institute and Untethered Magic.


UJUZI is for artists living and working in East Africa with specific research questions that they want to examine in order to develop their creative practice. The program cultivates multilayered practices where research and process are as important as the final outputs.
