Nka Foundation (www.nkafoundation.org) is an idea just as much as a non-profit organization. It is an artist initiative founded in 2005 with focus on human capital development through use of the arts at the intersections of life-long education, multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural collaborations. The foundation defines the arts broadly to include visual arts, literary arts, performing arts, design, new media/film production, arts history, arts criticism, arts education, arts administration and curatorship, and emerging others. Its successful projects involve arts symposium series, and concept arts village project. Nka Foundation continues to foster cross-cultural synergy for tapping local resources for sustainable development through community arts practice and infrastructure especially in rural communities in the Anglophone, Lusophone and Francophone African settings.
