Abroethiopia is an internatinal artists' workshop established in 2008, hosted by Asni Gallery and set in the very beautiful Ferensay Public Park, within the rural hills of Addis Ababa, in the centre of Ethiopia. The workshop was conceived by coordinator is Konjit Seyoum and facilitator Mulugeta Kassa and has so far included artists from Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Egypt, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, and Zambia.
In amharic the word 'abro' means 'together': Abroethiopia aims to provide a dynamic environment for artists, the emphasis of the workshop being on process, exploration and experimentation, rather than the final product.
In its unique surroundings, close to large areas of forest and indigenous wildlife, Abroethiopia facilitates painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, video and sound work, whilst encouraging exchange between artists and the local community through public art projects, open days and artists' talks- creating an important awareness of art and demonstrating its ability to play a part in social and cultural development.
Abroethiopia is not currently programming activities.
