The new face of AWAD is based on its past achievement and new direction has elevated it into the position of a real African Arts and Cultural heritage authority nationally and internationally.
AWAD remains the voice of grassroots African women community groups and individual artists as well as extends its work to embrace non-Africans as there were growing demands for AWAD’s support from diverse communities. This has made AWAD a leading grassroots name across Europe.
AWAD has piloted and had successful implementation of ground-breaking projects in the past five years. We would be sharing information of the projects as part of the organisation training publications.
AWAD lobbies and represents its network members at Executive meetings of Government departments and mainstream bodies. Including Arts Council of England, British Council, DFID, Heritage, Development Education Research Centre, IOE London, Education, Health and Social-Care Trusts, Development Education Associations (DEA), Police, Probations and The Unions including National Farmers Union.
