We produce, present and commission multidisciplinary performance work including theater, dance, film and music sharing stories of the African Diaspora.

We showcase the work of visual artists across artistic disciplines including painting, drawing, film, sculpture and more.

Our signature education programs provide opportunities for young people through mentorship and skills building activities, and our general audiences through public dialogue and events.
