Kurema, Kureba, Kwiga – which translates in English to “To Create, To See, To Learn” – is Rwanda’s preeminent public-arts social enterprise and custom art services provider. The organization works with professional Rwandan artists to create works of art that transform spaces and places through color and creativity.
Founded in 2013 with a mission of “bringing art out of the gallery and into the streets,” Kurema is working to put more color into the lives of people across Rwanda through unique community art-actions and custom creative commissions that drive social change and community development. Kurema brings a range of stakeholders together through strategic partnerships to deliver meaningful projects with shared value; to date the team has developed over 50 murals across the country, in addition to photography and sculpture projects as well as workshops, exhibitions, trainings, and group activities in 26 of Rwanda’s 30 districts. A combination of grant funding, sponsorships, fee-for-service commissions, and sale of merchandise enables this work. This document showcases just a few examples of Kurema’s colorful and engaging creations.
