Unchained Vibes Africa

Leveraging the power of the arts to promote civic education, good governance, human rights, cultural diversity, and the spirit of solidarity in Africa.

About Us

Unchained Vibes Africa (UVA) is a cultural organization and social enterprise committed to developing arts and culture projects geared towards social causes.

Our Work

Productions

We produce works of art that address social, political, economic and environmental problems in Africa, using music, drama, visual arts, spoken word poetry and comedy. 

Capacity Building

We help artists and cultural practitioners to further develop their skills and managerial
capacities. We design workshops and professional trainings in cultural entrepreneurship, cultural advocacy, copyright protection, etc.

Events

We organize concerts, talk shows and live performances that highlight social issues, create awareness and sensitize the public.

Cultural Exchange

We develop initiatives that encourage respect for cultural diversity and promote intercultural understanding.

So far, we have built a foundation with the experiment of a cultural exchange between UVA and the Hip- hop Studies Department of Columbia College, Chicago. In September 2021, we partnered with the Co- founder of Chicago Hip-hop Initiative Amina Norman-Hawkins, a scholar at Columbia College who hosted UVA artists on her Hip-hop class alongside American Hip-hop students who had a very interesting interaction and exchange via Zoom.

In May 2022, we organized Africa Day, in partnership WeWe Africa from Zimbabwe sharing knowledge, information and practices about African cultures through the lens of our food/delicacies.
