African Activities CIC
22nd October 2018
At African Activities CIC we are proud to be the leading supplier of African themed workshops across England. An African Activities workshop guarantees an authentic and quality experience from our exceptional artists. We are a collaborative group of African artists who we believe are the best you will find outside Africa, our musicians work across every continent except Antarctica and the Arctic! Of course we are CRB checked and insured.
We established African Activities CIC to promote and support the African Arts and their Artists but also to bring depth and alternative stories to the narrative of Africa in the UK, that we felt was narrow and did not represent our homelands. When teaching we place the art forms firmly within their cultural context and proudly share Africa's diversity.
We have worked with hundreds of schools and thousands of children (and indeed with 20 artists). We have also worked with a number of businesses and community groups including L'Oréal and Siemens.
This was an absolutely fantastic and worthwhile experience for our students. The performance at the end of the day made them feel incredibly proud and confident - a brilliant day facilitated by the happiest workshop leaders I've ever worked with. Thank you so much.
The Hurlingham Academy
Fantastic! Kwame worked with pupils aged 5 - 19 all of whom have SLD. He adapted the workshop to ensure that everyone was engaged. At the end of the workshops pupils had had a good time and many had a sense of achievement as they had performed with Kwame to their friends and staff.
Woodlands School, Surrey
We use our workshops to bring together diverse groups, each learning a skill for a new time. They can be a great leveller when used with new foster carers and their children and in a care setting with clinicians, clients and care staff all working together.
We also use our workshops to instil pride, working with dancing and drumming groups within deprived communities across the UK.
We also support our African Artists with training, advice and wages.
