We passionately collect and support Art Initiatives and institutions in the U.S., France and West Africa.
What started as an introspective journey led us to “Recognize the beauty and impact of the arts as a vector of societal transformation”.
We believe that it is critical to support and empower emerging artists at an early stage in their practices.
