Art & Design

KV hosts over 30 physical studios and workshop spaces where artists design and work on commissioned pieces. We also collaborate with a wide range of creatives throughout Africa. 

KV has also created specialised workshops with some of these creatives so visitors can learn and participate in what is being created. We offer tours of the spaces.
