The Zambia National Women Artists Documentation Project was founded in 1996 from a desire to support and promote women's arts and crafts in Zambia. The centre mainly provides artists with gallery and studio space. The project also organizes workshops on subjects such as improving artistic skills and the infrastructure required for the promotion of art work. In addition, the project has a collection of original work of Zambian women artists as well as documentary material on the artists themselves (interviews, questionnaires, photographs).
