Artists in Residence

Dana Whabira (born 1976 in London, grown up in in Harare/Zimbabwe, where she lives and works) is a trained architect and studied art and design at Central Saint Martin’s College in London. In 2013, she founded Njelele Art Station, an urban laboratory located in downtown Harare that focuses on contemporary, experimental and public art practice. Njelele is a meeting place for critical dialogue where ideas are birthed and resonate out into the city through projects that provoke discussion and engage with the general public.
