The Arts Canvas


The Arts Canvas™ stages performances, makes documentaries, and offers workshops.

The company (a non-profit) creates process-oriented art, with culture and history at the centre of its programmes.

Our events are fused with a contemporary African aesthetic.

Our productions provide audiences with an opportunity for research, conversation, reflection and critical thinking on contemporary issues and shared values.

In 2017 we start a new project.

The Mumbi Kaigwa Arts Institute (MKAI) will hold courses in video and audio production. Participants will be given an overview of programmes and formats, and an in-depth study of each of the following:

Features Documentary         Drama        Talk-Show        Reality TV       Music Video
