GoDown Arts Centre provides facilities, technical and advocacy support for the development, performance, and display of different forms of creative and artistic expression, and the growth of a vibrant and sustainable cultural sector in our country and region.

Our facility located on Dunga Road in Nairobi’s Industrial Area has hosted a wide array of local and international artists.

GoDown Arts Centre has provided artist studios, exhibition and performance spaces, and networking opportunities for local and international residencies.

Our goals have been to “facilitate the development of diverse art forms and the emergence of independent artists” who have the skills and resources to earn a dignified living from their craft and have adequate means of self-actualization.  

By catalysing the growth of a vibrant cultural sector in Kenya and across the region we aim to “stimulate cultural self-assurance and confidence between Kenyan society and Kenyan creative and cultural resources.” All Kenyan communities boast a rich artistic and cultural heritage. In a post-colonial era, however, we are in a space where we are reclaiming the legitimacy and role of our artistic voice and actors in the nuanced interpretation and documentation of our past and present, and the envisioning and shaping of our collective and all-inclusive future.
