Enlivening Culture

Enlivening Culture brings cultural activities to life through workshops in west African rhythm, dance and song, offering a direct experience of the vitality and history of these traditions in an accessible and enjoyable way that supports physical and mental well-being, community connection and offers an experience of belonging. 


Rhythmic Ground

Taking its starting point from the familiar song of the wood pigeon, Rhythmic Ground offers an empowering participative experience through rhythm and movement which steps towards a reclamation of our shared indigeneity in a simple, immersive and enjoyable way


Rhythmic Heart

At Rhythmic Heart we come home to our embodied selves, and lean into our connection to the land, and the intelligence of rhythms, dances and songs from West Africa. These traditions know how to re-connect us to our vitality and our joy as a potent route to profound well-being as we come together as tribe.
