“International exchange has a very strong value, especially in a world where there’s a great deal of conflict. We believe that going to see other cultures, and being creative with other cultures, is really a very positive way forward. It can be a true vehicle for social change.” Yinka Shonibare CBE RA

The Foundation is a UK registered charity, established in 2019 to provide fundraising and strategic support for the Guest Artists Space (G. A. S.) Foundation in Nigeria, amongst other initiatives.

The Foundation’s vision will be implemented through hosting and supporting residencies, education and professional development programmes in the UK and Nigeria.  In Nigeria, the Foundation will provide multi-use live/work residency spaces in the heart of the dynamic city of Lagos and on a rural working farm in Ijebu in Ogun State.

The work of the Foundation will:

Support and host international partnerships and collaborations across the fields of contemporary art, design, architecture, conservation, environmental and curatorial practices

 – Be a catalyst for mutual artistic exchange and nurturing cultural infrastructure

 – Establish a critical centre of research and experimentation in West Africa

 – Contribute to developing cultural diplomacy, professional practice and knowledge sharing

 – Create learning and dissemination programmes to connect local and global artists, researchers and audiences

The Yinka Shonibare Foundation is headed up by Belinda Holden and supported by an international board of trustees and an advisory board of prominent, global artists.
