Slanted in Rwanda: Niyonkuru Canda und Manzi Jackson / Kuuru Art Space
Special Issue Rwanda
For our special issue Slanted Rwanda we traveled to Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, in February 2019 and met numerous designers and artists in their studios.
During our journey we also visited the Kuuru Art Space which is an artist collective and physical space founded in 2017 by Rwandan artists Niyonkuru Canda, Manzi Jackson, and Moses Izabiriza. Having passed through Ivuka Arts, an artist incubator founded in 2007 where they experienced their artistic birth, Kuuru Arts was the next logical step for them to grow further. In Kinyarwanda “Kuuru” means growth, greatness and wisdom.
The exciting works of Niyonkuru Canda, Manzi Jackson, and Moses Izabiriza can be found in the Slanted Special Issue Rwanda, additionally we conducted a video interview with them about their attitude and work. Take a look at our new issue and the video platform to meet a new side of Rwanda!
