Now in its 4th Year the former FOYA, now renamed the Yoruba Arts Festival is a unifying social, cultural and educational platform for Yoruba's from around the world and people of African origin. It's objective, to develop and maintain a lasting and self-sustainable platform for community cohesion and development through Arts and Culture.
It's a 2 day, weekend affair held in open air, making more accessible Yoruba Art's to a wider audience worldwide and to encourage traditional arts practice through cultural performances, workshops, Art exhibitions, competitions and live music from artists showcasing Yoruba music in its traditional and contemporary forms during the Festival.
In 2013, the annual Yoruba Arts Festival was extended into a two day weekend event. In doing so, we are in a better position to include more features, activities and entertainment, showcasing and celebrating Yoruba Arts, Culture and Intellectual Heritage.
