Delfina Foundation’s Network of Africa Patrons is a new initiative, launched in 2020 to enable us to shape our engagement and professional support of the continent’s next generation of creative practitioners and feeding back into networks across the region.

In this endeavour, we are building on our history of nurturing the careers of artists and curators from across Africa such as Bisi Silva (Nigeria), Kendell Geers (South Africa), Lydia Ourahmane (Algeria), Nástio Mosquito (Angola/Belgium), Élise Atangana (France/Cameroon), Wael Shawky (Egypt), Nadia Kaabi-Linke (Tunisia) and Syowia Kyambi (Germany/Kenya).
