Established in 2016 by Ugandan born artist Benon Lutaaya, THE PROJECT SPACE (TPS) is a non-profit cultural laboratory dedicated to the advancement of contemporary African art, and the promotion of the culture of entrepreneurship among young Africans. It’s an institutional platform centred on creating spaces and improving opportunities for African artists and young entrepreneurs.
The Space embodies values of patronage as a context and framework to encourage creativity, innovation, collaboration, resource-sharing and cultural production among contemporary African artists, and creative entrepreneurs especially women - with a special focus on self-sustainability. THE PROJECT SPACE’s mission is to build a ' FIRST' in the contemporary art world; a non-profit cultural platform that doesn't rely on public or corporate funds to offer its uncompromising support to artists.
The spaces strategy and future programming stems from the knowledge that art and business are not separate; rather, understanding business is vital for growing the visual arts; creating spaces, expanding markets and opportunities for art, and artists to thrive.
