Ashé Cultural Arts Center

At the Ashé Cultural Arts Center, our mission is to use art and culture to support community development. We are an initiative of Efforts of Grace, Inc., a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that creates and supports programs, activities, and creative works emphasizing the contributions of people of African descent.

The Ashé Kuumba Institute commits to always do as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our communities more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it. Our goal is to inspire students to use culture and the arts to help develop their power of expression and encourage the building of relationships within the community and throughout the world. Our program serves students ages 6-16. Students receive specialized training in: Visual Arts, Dance, Stepping, Photography, Poetry, Arts and Crafts, Drama and African Drumming. The program meets on Saturdays in the fall and Monday through Friday in the summer.
