About Our Portal_Site

The Africa Center is an experimental institution with transformation at its core. As a multidisciplinary nonprofit, the Africa Center provides a forward-looking gateway for engagement with Africa. Located at the intersection of Harlem and Museum Mile on Fifth Avenue, The Africa Center operates locally and globally to promote an African narrative of ingenuity and innovation across the fields of policy, culture, and business.

Over the coming year, Shared_Studios is working in partnership with The Africa Center to develop content and programming that connects African diaspora communities in New York with the world, live and full-body. From digital salon pop-ups to theatrical performances, artist talks, history immersions, and Shared_Meals, communities across the global African diaspora will connect for meaningful dialogue, performance, and exchange.
