Addis Ababa

Culture and growth.


Ready to Burst Open.


Addis Ababa is a city of hidden treasures. New public spaces and arts spaces are opening up, but so much of the city's artistic beauty is hidden from open view. Most artists in the city work out of small, private studios. Many of these spaces are down windy alleys, tucked into quiet residential areas. Most spaces have no signs or public marking, but walking into once you cross into one of these studios you are transported. Gone are the throngs of people and minibuses. Now, you are surrounded by bright, fresh, and beautiful art. Each piece is packed with historical and cultural commentary. Each piece has a unique voice. At Tatu, we hope to amplify these voices.
