Umoja Arts role is to

  • Produce and facilitate Afrikan and Caribbean events and community activities
  • Provide support and development to local Afrikan and Caribbean people
  • To champion Afrikan Caribbean culture across Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset

We believe in delivering inspiring arts events and activities, connecting with the local community to offer quality opportunities to take part, go see and learn about Africa and the Caribbean. Our core program has been delivering:

Urban Roots – a family learning day
Umoja Carnival – a beach promenade procession
Highlight – a visual arts platform
Black History – promoting positive images of Black culture

This has been achieved by working in partnership with local arts and community organisations such as Wave, Activate Performing Arts, Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the arts, Soundstorm, Dorset Race Equality Council, Dorset’s African Caribbean Association and our local authorities Bournemouth Borough Council, Borough of Poole and Dorset County Council.

Umoja means UNITY  - Connecting - Developing - Inspiring - Resilient - Together
