The project, called the African Art Space Project, was initiated by African Artists for Development (AAD), a philanthropic organisation founded in 2009 by the French collectors Matthias and Gervanne Leridon. AAD initiatives include a contemporary African art exhibition that has travelled to seven countries, financing the creation of three libraries in West Africa and bringing dance and music performances to a refugee camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
