For 10 years Africa Oyé has been working closely with local schools and community centres in our outreach programme.
In previous years Oyé has been able to build a fantastic relationship with the community and hosted successful workshops in schools. The artists who lead the workshops have been from a range of countries including Haiti, Niger, Zimbabwe, Cape Verde, as well as artists which are based in the UK.
Engaging with children in the region helps to promote the positive images of African culture we hold dear.
There are opportunities throughout the year to get involved and if you would like to host a workshop in your school please get in touch.
Please check this page for updates on opportunities available.
NuTRIBE: Multi-disciplinary workshops
Dates currently available: 12th-23rd March 2018.
Our curriculum-linked workshops are a great way to inspire participants and gain insight and interest in the arts. Our workshops are specifically designed by our team of experts to inspire your learners and enrich their learning experience.
Born and raised in Liverpool 8, Nutribe are looking to share their skills with North West students in our multi-disciplinary, multi-sensory workshop. The collective can cover elements ranging from music, dance, technology and communication.
Having performed on the main stage during the 25th Anniversary in 2017, the group is highly conscious, lyrical and have a sound that will be the foundation of the workshops learning experience.
What will the workshop achieve:
‘To experience music, you do not need instruments or be able to sing, you just need to be present’.
Throughout the workshop, the Nutribe collective will provide their artistic background and tell their story of how they got to where they are now, share their skill-set and take the students on a journey of self discovery. Their own songs cover topics from social injustice to what food they like to eat.
The team are highly adaptable so if you would like to produce a short performance on a particular topic, we would be happy to incorporate this into your workshop. The workshops are a valuable and bespoke learning experience.
Maximum of 35 children per workshop
Full day = £180
Morning or Afternoon = £100
