What we do

Our arts programmes are underpinned by research, focused on young people (18 – 35-year olds), and committed to:

  • Supporting the creation of new art and sharing this art to audiences both online and in person.
  • Sharing skills and knowledge between creative communities in West Africa and the UK
  • Creating new connections between young people in West Africa and the UK.

Our programmes are delivered by partners (artists, arts professionals, arts organisations, collectives, hubs) who have the vision and understanding of their creative communities and are best placed to lead and tell the stories of their art sectors. With our partners, we stimulate new ways of connecting with and understanding each other through the arts.

Through activities in Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and the UK, we focus our resources into two broad programmes - Creative Economy and Connecting
