Arts of Africa and its diaspora combine the exploration of rhythm, movement, song, drama, poetry, storytelling and visual arts. We provide a range of workshops for education, community and corporate settings which focus on skills development as well as the cultural context of the art forms. Our offer includes:
- African and Afro-Brazilian drumming
- Traditional African and Afrobeat dance
- African storytelling
- Drama improvisation
- Spoken word poetry
- Visual arts including African mask making, printmaking and upcycled arts
- Yoga with African drumming
These can be booked as individual workshops or in combination, eg African drumming with dance where participants get the opportunity to see how the rhythms and movement are an integral part of each other within one workshop.
All our tutors are experienced and DBS checked. We can also offer Arts Award accredited courses at levels Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver.
We also run regular weekly workshops in our local community. You can view the timetable here.
