International Ebola Recovery Conference

Kamba Fine Art is a gallery based in Grays devoted to the development of contemporary art in non-Western nations, and supports emerging and established African talent, giving them a platform for their work.

This year Kamba Gallery have been invited by the Sierra Leone High Commission to attend the International Ebola Recovery Conference in New York on 24th of October  2015. Kamba will be raising funds for the victims of the Ebola crisis by showing a series of unique art pieces created by 20 prominent African artists. The gallery have commissioned 40 works to be created for the auction in reaction to the Ebola crisis, after the conference they will be generously donated to areas that have been affected by the Ebola outbreak. These pieces will be placed in hospitals, schools, museums and national parks.

This will be Kamba Gallery's second visit to the UN after participating in the UN’s 70th Anniversary in July last year. In conjunction to this event in New York, the gallery is also planning to hold an auction in London to help raise money for the Sierra Leone based charities, Street Child and Excel. Before their trip to the UN, Kamba Gallery will hold an exhibition in London at Gallery 8 which will take place 23 - 30 September, 2015.
