Inspiring Through Art
We bring the music, art, and culture of Africa to New England and beyond, spreading awareness and inspiring new ways of cultural thinking. Our concerts, workshops, lectures, and other educational programs showcase emerging and established African artists.
SPREADING IMPORTANT AWARENESS
In 2012, we launched African Arts in Education—a charitable, fiscally sponsored project that enabled us to further extend awareness and appreciation of African art and music throughout schools and community groups. African Arts in Education is a leading source of professional African music, art, and dance education, and has served nearly 70,000 students in its first four years. Together, we continue to successfully share the cultures of Africa through interactive workshops, compelling performances, and engaging school residencies.
Giving A Voice To Artists
We’re proud to showcase some of the world’s most accomplished African artists in our programs, while also providing opportunities for many emerging artists. Our performers are cultural ambassadors, earning a living from their arts through performing and teaching.
