Dana Whabira is the current grant holder of KfW Stiftung’s program Curators in Residence: Curating Connections in collaboration with Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD / Artists-in-Berlin Program. The program provides emerging curators from Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia with the opportunity to spend six months in Berlin. Besides encouraging research and critical reflection, it facilitates encounters between those working in arts and culture. The residency program seeks to stimulate intercultural dialogue in curatorial practice.

Dana Whabira (b. 1976, London; raised in Harare/Zimbabwe, where she currently lives and works) is a trained architect and studied art and design at Central Saint Martin’s College in London. In 2013, she founded Njelele Art Station, an urban laboratory located in downtown Harare that focuses on contemporary, experimental and public art practice. Njelele is a meeting place for critical dialogue where ideas are birthed and resonate out into the city through projects that provoke discussion and engage with the general public. Njelele recently participated in the Symposium D’Art Mali by Médina Mediatheque, part of the Rencontres de Bamako 2015 OFF program.
