AWA Nigeria Tour 2023 at Freedom Park

December 7, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Sonia Aimy and JBWAI bring you the AWA Nigeria Tour 2023, in partnership with Freedom Park Lagos, ActionAid, Institut Francais Nigeria, Lagos State University, Ontario Arts Council, Vomnetwork, Playroom Media Limited, Showbuzz Media Ltd, Mambaah Bistro, and Culture Advocates Caucus.

African Women Acting (AWA) is a not-for-profit organization geared towards empowering, preserving and promoting women issues & the heritage of African culture through African arts and Female artists or artists with African expressions.

Founded in 2011 by international artist Sonia Aimy, African Women Acting (AWA) is an incorporated non-profit organization. The organization aims to empower, promote and preserve African cultural arts of all modalities in Ontario. These include vocal and instrumental music, theatre, dance, visual arts, spoken word, story-telling and poetry.

In order to comprehensively achieve our goal, we ardently support female African artists and those of the diaspora and champion related issues. As we are a community of women, the agenda of addressing social activism for social issues such as sexism, discrimination, racism, homelessness, gender-based violence and mental health are some aimed at to eradicate. Through artistic expressions, AWA brings these issues to light and offers knowledge, support and solutions.

Although AWA prioritizes promoting female African artists, we strongly believe in inclusivity in the arts community. We encourage partnerships and collaborations with artists of all genders, ethnicities and religious or spiritual beliefs.

On Thursday, 7th December at Freedom Park Lagos, the Music Concert will be staging for about Three (3) hours to demonstrate the purpose of the organization’s establishment. Let us endeavour to experience the atmosphere where music meets freedom.
