The African Arts Trust
"The African Arts Trust will act as a catalyst for the emergence and growth of locally managed and sustainable contemporary art organisations in Africa"

The African Arts Trust is a charitable trust set up by the collector and philanthropist, Robert Devereux, following the successful fundraising auction of his private collection of post-war British art at Sothebys, London in 2010.

The trust is based on years of frequent travel to Africa and the recognition that there is a wealth of artistic talent there, which is stifled by the lack of resources available locally to full time artists.

The charity is run by the following trustees, Robert Devereux, Founder and Director, Hamish Dewar, Director of Hamish Dewar Conservation Ltd, Robin Woodhead, Chairman of Sotheby's International and administered by Danda Jaroljmek, Circle Art Agency, Nairobi.
