‘’The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance’’ – Aristotle

Essamba Home Foundation strongly believes that art cuts across cultural, educational, social, racial, and economic barriers and enhances cultural appreciation and awareness.


Art lifts our spirits and makes us feel good. When creating art, we are directly impacted by its power and emotion. It is a release of expressions that comforts and relaxes the mind.


It enables everybody to start building self-respect and acquire skills, to develop both independence and better their future.



ART is a way to explore, to communicate, to question and to create. 


ART helps to promote mutual respect, understanding and tolerance and to construct a peaceful culture.


ART can be used as a tool to empower.
