The Youlou Art Centre is focused on encouraging and nurturing the work of local women artists. It is a known fact, women artists lack opportunity in showcasing their work. Women artists have many issues to surmount, they are constantly faced with obligations, which tend to derail them from achieving artistic success.

Youlou Arts is focused on actively seeking ways of empowering and championing the work of women artists.

The public is urged to come out and support the women. In these challenging times the world needs art more than ever.

The Youlou Art Centre is owned and operated by Youlou Arts Foundation, a non profit, non governmental organization whose mission is to promote excellence in the arts.
