ArtBall is a premier contemporary African art auction and philanthropic event that aims to raise funds and awareness for Amref Health Africa. This year, ArtBall will honor artist Toyin Ojih Odutola with the Rees Visionary Award for bringing forth critical African cultural and transcultural perspectives, that inspire and embolden the viewer through these challenging times.

About Amref Health Africa:
With headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, Amref Health Africa is the largest Africa-based healthcare nonprofit, serving an average of nine million people per year across 35 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. We strengthen health systems and train African health workers to respond to the continent’s most critical health challenges: maternal and child health, infectious disease (HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria), access to clean water and sanitation, and surgical and clinical outreach. Our approach is community-based and makes the people we reach partners, rather than beneficiaries. Over 97% of our global staff are Africans, so that we are always tackling African challenges with African expertise.
