Culture and Connection: Woezo Africa’s journey to encourage cross-cultural exchange and diversity in the arts.

Since 2006, Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre Inc., based in Calgary (Mohkinstsis), AB, has been passionately dedicated to bringing the history of African culture to the masses through traditional and modern modes of performing arts, including dance, music, theatre and storytelling. The arts organization has encouraged artistic creativity and excellence, increased awareness of and participation in the arts, driven partnerships between arts organizations and other professional sectors, supported innovative cultural activities and provided mentorship opportunities for artists. Their goal is to serve the community by contributing to cultural development and artist spotlighting while shifting misconceptions regarding diversity to inspire people of all backgrounds to engage as artists and supporters of the arts. Join us for a conversation on Art and Culture with Wunmi Idowu, Founder and Director of Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre Inc., and how we might participate in making Calgary a more vibrant city through cross-cultural learning experiences.
