who we are

here for the arts

Dancing is in our veins, its in our blood. For us, dancing is not a hobby, it’s a way of life.

woezo Africa

Since 2006, Woezo Africa 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. 

Woezo Africa has encouraged artistic creativity and excellence, increased awareness of and participation in the arts, driven participation in the arts organizations and other professional sectors, supported innovative cultural activities and provided mentorship opportunities for artists.

We intend to have our art service the community by contributing to the cultural development and artist spotlighting while shifting misconceptions regarding diversity.

Woezo Africa is focused on collaborative partnerships, demonstrating value and accountability to supporters and maximizing the contribution of community leadership by:

  • building a network of community advocates through investing in strong and sustainable relationships
  • increasing familiarity between African and Caribbean community members and building trust
  • increasing mutual empathy between Woezo Africa and the various diasporic community associations

The diverse, award-winning organization provides an array of services and educational community outreach programming, involving school-based artist residencies, dance classes and workshops and event production and arts management.

Woezo Africa’s local and international productions include Africa Jo, UNITY: Dance Across Africa, and their annual Black History Month event UNGANISHA: Explore. Connect. Dance. The organization has also produced two editions of Woezo Africa Festival in collaboration with the Guild of Nigerian Dancers (G.O.N.D) and Ijodee Dance Center in Lagos, Nigeria. By pushing for increased visibility of ethnically and culturally diverse artists in Alberta, Woezo Africa hopes that perceptions will shift around who participates in the arts. Through dynamic, cutting-edge work that captures the imagination of a range of audiences, Woezo Africa continues to enhance the creative economy in Calgary, empower communities and perpetuate the movement for instilling social change.
