Be a leading community arts education organisation for Western and African dance forms, music and performing arts training for children and young people (CYP) aged 6- 16+ in the UK
AkomaAsa Arts is a community arts education organisation that offers Western and African diaspora dance forms, music and performing arts training for children and young people (CYP) aged 6- 16+.
The academy offers two arts educational programmes: African Diaspora Dance & Music and Performing Arts.
Founded by Akosua Boakye BEM in 2005 and launched in 2012, AkomaAsa Arts works with the support of parents, creative individuals, organisations and the voices of our CYP. We engage in the on going work of teaching and learning about African, Caribbean and Western social, cultural and historical connections through collaborative working relationships. Our programmes are tailored to nurture the next generation of creators and performers.
In a dynamically vibrant atmosphere, a caring and safe environment, CYP are supported to engage, inspired to learn and develop the confidence and self-esteem needed to enable them to rise to present day challenges. CYP are support to be themselves, empowered through dance, music and performing arts to have fun, take risks to work towards their aspirations whilst developing transferable skills for life.
