Netsa Art Village (defunct)



Netsa (which means free in Amharic) Arts Village was established in 2008 by eleven graduates of Addis Ababa University’s School of Fine Arts and Design with the aim of promoting contemporary art in Ethiopia and giving emerging artists a platform for exchange, discussion and debate on all issues related to art; to stimulate the quality, development and context of contemporary art practice in Ethiopia. The group has since had to dissassemble the village after being removed by the local government from the park where they were formerly situated.
