In our community, we work every day to inspire others to see themselves in Africa’s rich culture and history. By bringing our performers to the stage, we share the thread that unites and connects us all.
ACC brings Africa to the community by showcasing live music and dance experiences and sharing arts and crafts opportunities. We partner with organizers and businesses to tailor presentations that meet the needs and abilities of those who are attending. Presentations can include:
Our artists bring the rhythms of Africa to the heartland with energetic and colorful performances at a variety of public and private events. ACC works with event organizers to determine the best type of music and/or dance performances that would engage the attendees. Artists are available to mingle with audience-goers afterwards to share more about African culture and arts.
Each year, ACC holds its annual festival, Tikpere, to raise funds for programming. Through this event, we build awareness about our mission and programs to the public. We interact and connect with our long-standing supporters, and give our community an opportunity to learn more about the importance of African culture. This year Tikpere will be held at the Omaha Community Playhouse July 9th.
Tikpere, meaning “Our Culture and History Will Not Disappear” in Bariba, is a festive community event designed to increase the knowledge of and cultural pride in the history, strengths and contributions of traditional and modern African cultures through a lively, colorful African performance. Doors open at 7:00pm and the performance begins at 7:30. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to experience authentic African culture through vibrant dance, drumming and storytelling. Come watch as the African Culture Connection artists walk you through a beautiful African story of cultural pride and the positive influences Africa has had in our society.
