The British Council commissioned this mapping study to provide an overview of the visual arts sector in nine countries within Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). These are: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa (SA), Sudan, Uganda, and Zimbabwe.

This report was compiled by Andani.Africa to support the development of one of the key British Council programmatic areas, Culture Connects. By identifying emerging visual arts trends, opportunities, and innovative solutions within each of these African countries, it is envisioned that this research will provide renewed approaches for collaboration, funding models and programme initiatives. An inquiry into ways of making work happen, audience trends, market access and needs unique to each context, this research provides comprehensive insights into contemporary visual arts outlooks.
