Artist in Residence: Heather Chontos

It’s a balmy evening in Stone Town, August 2017, and I meet Heather Chontos, an artist from the USA, and her 2 daughters for the first time. They are incredibly friendly, open and excited to be here.

Hamad (Director of CACZ) and I had been to Nafasi Arts Space, in Dar es Salaam, earlier in the year and discussed with their team that we are eager to welcome artists from not only East Africa, but across the globe, to share their arts experiences and meet up with Zanzibari artists.
