“Lovely people. My boys had some priceless moments at the summer school.”
— Parent of Summer School Partcipant
“My daughter attended the summer school this year was greeted with smiles and enthusiasm and has had an absolute blast all week. Learning some brilliant moves and meeting some fantastic people. She’d come home every night tired but full of fire and it finished with a really welcoming community event with delicious foods, storytelling and the kids showcasing their works! awesome! looking forward to seeing her perform alongside this amazing project tomorrow at the Merchant City Festival

When is the next event. We can’t wait to come back

Project X Summer School

In July 2017, we are ran a free summer school for 8-13 years at The African Arts Centre from Monday 17th -Friday 21st. 

The five day programme included; learning traditional African Dances, as well as more contemporary styles. There were storytelling sessions, costume making and movies celebrating dances of the African Diaspora!

Supported by BEMIS and Visit Scotland's Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology we held the Let's Dance Carnival on Friday 21st July. This celebration event  showcased what the young people created, as well as performances from Divine Tasinda, and storytelling from Gift Amu Logoste to celebrate our African Diaspora heritage. 

To finish off the summer school, on Saturday 22nd July we performed as part of Glasgow’s Merchant City Festival
