Adenrele Sonariwo - Rele Arts Foundation

Rele Arts Foundation is a non-profit aimed at engaging and driving the practice and reception of contemporary art in Nigeria while exploring the role of art as a tool for social change and positive impact. With the implementation of several art-driven initiatives like The Young Contemporaries, Art Summit and Nigeria in Venice project, the Foundation has been instrumental in driving critical discourse, fostering interdisciplinary exchange between art and technology, and providing opportunities for experimental and collaborative artistic projects.  The grant will be instrumental in helping to expand the scope of the Young Contemporaries Program to cater to more artists from other countries in Africa and provide the resources for more intensive programming.
