This is a nice local arts centre with art from local painters and a great project to help orphans in the area and teach them art/support them.

Beautiful Art in Kigali
May 2021 • Solo
Perfect way to spend 1 or 2 hours in Kigali while supporting local artists with your donations or by taking painting/crafts classes. The surroundings are well done and invite you into the arts world of rwandan artists. There is a gift shop where you can purchase some artworks and craft. Part of revenue generated from the center goes towards the community

The Inema Art Center has a wonderful selection of art by Rwandan artists. Both the outside and the inside art is displayed in a creative fashion with lots of variety. A cafe is also located inside the Center.

Do not miss the Inema Art Center during your time in Kigali!
Jan 2020
We took time on our first day in Kigali to visit the Inema Art Center (Center). We loved the art and the mission of the Center. We felt fortunate that we met not only Timothy, one of the artists who showed the the gallery and answered our questions, but also Innocent, one of the Center's co-founders and foremost artists in Rwanda. Rather than call us a cab for the ride back to our hotel, Tutu, another the Center's artists, drove us back in his personal vehicle. Not only was the art on display in the Center thought-provoking and beautiful, our interaction with Center artists and one of its co-founders, who were all warm and gracious, made for a truly memorable visit.

Wonderful
Feb 2020
Some very creative original art displayed here in this gallery run by 3 artist brothers. Some of the work displayed and for sale is their own. However they also run art and dance classes for young people off site.....and that would have been fascinating to visit too.

Wonderful pieces and highlighted forms of recycling, beautiful pieces but very expensive or rather it had a different target market which the manager made clear. Worth a visit

A wonderful celebration of Newe African Art
Jan 2020
This is a wonderful art gallery with many painters in residence. The art is original and exuberant with bold colours and wonderful creativity. Most of the objects are available to purchase, helping to support up and coming local artists . There are also other activities for youth groups such as dancing and drumming.
