What We Do

At Open Arts

Open Arts is an arts collective committed to promoting the arts and creative endeavours. Open Arts as a creative organisation touches the expression of passion in the creative arts as part of its mission of making a positive difference in the lives of people in the community through work of arts. We prioritize works of art and stories from people (women, young people in villages and communities) whose voices have been excluded from the universal conversation. Using arts and culture as narratives to influence and shape the reality of life in Northern Nigeria.

We have previously been supported with a British Council Catalyst Grant as part of the New Arts New Audiences (NaNa) initiative to open up discussions about East and West Africa’s language relationship especially with Hausa and Kiswahili through history, music and arts from the past and present, to a new and exciting young audience from underprivileged communities in the art sector.
