- At African Arts Arena, we strongly believe that, while art must entertain, it can engage community members on challenging social issues facing the community, for a better and more welcoming world, for all.
What is being said about us...
"I believe I can speak on the behalf of most students when I say that most of us who have never seen African storytelling. it is a unique, active, and genuinely beautiful way of portraying a tale about morals and values. We are very grateful that Hamzat gave up his time to come to Red River High School and perform for us.” ( Alyssa D. Dec. 11, 2018.)
“Hamzat's performance overall was a wonderful experience. He was very polite and kind and was very open with the students. He was great at displaying emotions on the stage as well as projecting. His use of the stage was very unique.
The story he chose to portray was one that most students had never heard of before. The tale kept students interested to hear more as Hamzat was able to create the tension the characters felt."

At African Arts Arena, we address issues of inclusive diversity through Arts. This is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation with community members and empowerment of new immigrants, we believe we can facilitate progress in this area.
