A virtual show that focuses on Africa's contributions to knowledge. The Space, created and hosted by Joyce Adewumi, is a platform for people of African descent to show up in their authentic selves and break down negative stereotypes that have often overshadowed their achievements in global developments. The Space’s programs are categorized according to three areas: Arts and Culture, African Cosmology, and Topical Issues
These programs are open to all. The more we learn about each other the more we will come to understand that the only race that exists is the Human Race.
Arts and Culture
From Kings to Carvers, from Lagos to Finland, you will find people of African descendant either preserving ancient knowledge or applying ancient wisdom toward the goal of continuous innovations. Discover the trend setters in traditional and contemporary music, dance, visual and plastic arts, experiential media and much more. Join us on the last Saturday of every month at 5PM EDT on Zoom, Facebook and Youtube
A Nigerian composer speaks:
African Wisdom and Heritage preserved as Art works and Home Decorations:
To understand African music, dances, festival, etc., one must understand African traditional view of the relationship between human beings and the universe. The Space is pleased to welcome Chief Dr. Sola Atanda, who will be sharing amazing information about people of African descent that are often omitted from books.
