This support will help us to cover the basic expenses that keep the space running, from rent, electricity, water, and security, to salaries for our staff, production expenses for exhibitions and events, and marketing and promotions.   Nafasi supports the human right to participate in free and active cultural life, which strengthens the community and builds a shared sense of cultural pride and identi- Nafasi Art Space, P.O.

We are excited to partner with the Norwegian Embassy in this effort to have a positive impact on society through art. Asanteni Sana! Nafasi Art Space, P.O.
