Kanye West has ‘humanitarian’ mission and visits Connecticut farm

What is Kanye West up to?

The rapper — who Page Six exclusively reported was helping ex-wife Kim Kardashian with her monologue for this weekend’s “SNL” appearance — was spotted in New Canaan, Connecticut at an 80-acre farm that runs initiatives based on nature, arts, justice, community, and faith.

One source tells us he could be planning for an upcoming Sunday Services, while another speculates that West could be picking up ideas for his recently announced Donda Academy.

The Academy, named after the rapper’s late mother who was a professor at Chicago State University, is set to be a tuition-free prep school in Simi Valley, Calif. The Web site bills it as “Finding the intersection between faith and the innovation of the future, Donda Academy is focused on equipping students with an education that will last in the ever-changing world.”

Grace Farms calls itself “a humanitarian and cultural center,” which focuses on “nature, arts, justice, community, and faith initiatives,” according to its site, which also states, “we are committed to [addressing] humanitarian issues together, including modern slavery, environmental sustainability, food insecurity, and disconnected communities.”

Along with seemingly similar visions, Grace Farms is home to the River Building, which was designed by a West favorite, Tokyo-based Sanaa architectural firm, and was made with the idea of “fluid integration” between the building and its environment.

Architect Oana Stanescu worked at Sanaa, and went on to join Dong-Ping Wong in working on West’s Paris and LA homes, as well as designing a moving stage for the recording artist’s 2013 tour.

West also tweeted his adoration of a chair designed by Sanaa in 2020.
