The GoDown Arts Centre
Focus: Public Art, Exhibitions, Biennales and Festivals, Workshops, Masterclasses, Artist Studios, Residencies
Established in 2003, The GoDown Arts Centre has contributed significantly to the growth, recognition and visibility of local artists by fostering and facilitating collaborations and encounters between artists from different disciplines and the community. The arts centre on Dunga road hosts ten autonomous creative organizations and 15-20 visual artists in residence. The GoDown’s interventions mainly focus on building capacity for artists and developing platforms for critical dialogue and strategic convenings targeted towards tackling important aspects in the arts sector – which include the Creative Economy, the local policy environment and training for practitioners. We also create platforms where artists can showcase their work – concerts, exhibitions, festivals.
