Enlivening Culture brings cultural activities to life through workshops in west African rhythm, dance and song.
England has a history of involvement in the transatlantic slave trade, part of a legacy of colonialism which has degraded many cultural traditions from the African diaspora. Enlivening Culture offers 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.
The workshop includes warm up activities, an introduction to west African drum & dance, space for creative exploration, and discussion around the history and meaning of the traditions and how they relate to life in the UK.
