We visited our last day in Dar Es Salaam (Aug. 31, 2020) and found it an inspiring space, although coronavirus has resulted in shutting down much of Nafasi's activities. The director of Marketing (Ezekial?) was gracious and took us on a tour of the galleries and workspaces, and explained the ongoing evolution of the organization. Really appreciated the creative use of shipping containers for workshops, and as an African American (human being) it was very touching to see the George Floyd "I can't breathe" tribute and discussion place. A must see/experience while in DAR but bring mosquito repellent!

Amazing and inspiring place if you want to see a bit of Dar that is not touristy. David who showed us around was brilliant. The exhibition that was on was superb, we were sad that we couldn't but the piece we wanted...just a bit out of our budget but we recommend this place.

There are very few places like Nafasi Art Space in Dar es Salaam, where people of different backgrounds mingle so easily over a well-curated but fun program in agreat green space with restaurant, (studio) shops and kiosk. It is a very open, diverse and lovable venue.

The place is so unique and artistic as its name, I had a warmly welcome from the people at Nafasi Artspace and get walked to explore the arts( collection of masterpieces) made by different artists.

People are very friendly, enthusiastic, and passionate about what they do, it's like this small calm world in the middle of the busy city, A good place for chilling by and enjoying your weekend.

There are not just paintings, there is cinema experience, cultural music experience, I would probably get back at this place

An interesting way to spend the evening. Lots of local talent in both performing and fine art. Spaces for children to paint and inspire creativity. The dancing was incredible. You can purchase art pieces here!

i have been in most of Art centres in Dar es salaam and Nafasi is with no doubt the best, it has a great mixture of visual and performing artist who most does contemporary art. artist have different taste and their work tells stories of their own. other places they only do for the sake of business and at nafasi is all about creativity and artist belief.
also they have a very great management who will show you around and they an amazing hospitality

If you're looking for interesting performances, amazing art and a wonderful environment, there's nothing like Nafasi Art Space. Make sure you follow them on social media so that you can find out what's happening there every week. Movie screenings, dance, visual arts, music...everything goes. My friends and I love Nafasi! <3

Nafasi Art Space is THE place to be if you're interested in arts and culture! A space to be inspired, to relax, to do yoga, to enjoy arts and music, to visit exhibitions, to have great food, to meet up with new people (or with friends and families) and more...there are many events you can participate in or just come and visit the place. There is even a children space for kids who want to be creative ;-)

Brilliant programming and very caring people. Try to find Pascal one of the dance teachers for a 1 on 1 yoga / exercise session. I hope it sticks around for generations to come!
