Celebrating creativity & culture

The Legacy Art Foundation (LAF) is a non-profit organization based in Lagos, Nigeria. Established in 2021, the goal is to empower and uplift emerging African artists by providing scholarships, sponsorship, facilitating residencies, and offering innovative forms of support.
