As a growing organisation, we work within communities to engage people. From delivering cultural and diversity workshops in Black History, to providing platforms to explore issues, reduce isolation and promote well-being, we use African music, storytelling, dance, drama as our tool, and bringing the work we do alive through debate.
We work across all setting, and our work is delivered by experienced practitioners to make memorable, inclusive experiences, empowering all and enhancing positive inclusion
We provide workshops mapped to explore Black History in exciting and innovative ways. Listening to teachers, we deliver bespoke packages/workshops, achieving positive and inclusive outcomes for all. Activities include discussions, debates, African drumming, dance, music and storytelling.
Our pricing structure is comparable, but more importantly, such to enable reinvestment into communities, so by working with us, you will be investing in your community too.
All workshops can be adapted to work alongside whatever requirements exist, whether for the very young or more senior citizens, likewise with those with special needs or learning difficulties. Whatever the case, we’ll work together to create a bespoke experience.
Using African drums (suitable for small hands too) we make memorable, positive moments! ’Exploring the beat’, children are encouraged to play, sing, move and dance along with their Agida Practitioner.
Drumming sessions enable children of all levels to work as one and communication is through listening and responding. Our workshops are extremely popular, and we find the whole experience particularly effective in schools. They learn a unique skill set that becomes a talking point for a long time at the same time as gaining an understanding of African culture and Black History.
African folklore and ‘tall tales', from Africa, handed down to and shared by Urban Griot, Karim Mbaye. These workshops are delivered together with percussion and/or stringed accompaniment to keep all engaged. Word repetition is used and movement encouraged. Time to express and respond is key to this activity, to provide inclusive participation. It includes encouragement of choral speaking too!
