SANAA @RT UNIVERSE
Since October 2020, Sanaa @rt – Organized by Lilechi – has held monthly Art and Craft Exhibitions on weekends. The idea was motivated by the need to provide a platform for artistic youth to express their creativity. Until now, the platform has not only kept them economically engaged but also diverted their attention away from self-destructive behaviors like drug misuse and crime. Not only have the participants benefited from the fantastic networks they’ve built between themselves, but also from the clients who contract them to make artworks both within and outside of the city. The initiative has contributed significantly to emancipating visual artists from the economic hardships wrought by the Covid -19 pandemic.
There are two markets:
1. SANAA CRAFTS MARKET
This is a market where handcrafted unique gift items are sold. Products range from jewellery, woodwork, leatherwork, Kitenge/Ankara, crotchet bags and many more. The market takes place at Sarit on the majority of weekends, every month. Check the registration form below to see prices and when the next show will be happening.
2. SANAA @RT
This is a Fine Arts market in which artists exhibit their artworks such as Paintings, Drawings, Sculpture. and Live Caricature Drawing. SANAA @RT is a four day (Thursday to Sunday) event that takes place atleast once every month, at Sarit on the Ground floor.
