The Olaju Art Group’s mission is to raise awareness of issues concerning West Africa and beyond through the use of visual & performing arts. By promoting emerging artists from Africa and its Diaspora, we engage international audiences with authentic culture. Through this engagement, we are able to provide signature experiences used to better understand and appreciate critical elements of our heritage.
We are a collective of artists, curators, researchers and patrons working towards the common goal of establishing cultural arts as a tool for African development.
Our team designs and manages bespoke experiences for global audiences to engage with issues concerning Africa and the diaspora. An emphasis on cultural education provides authentic learning opportunities to members and visitors, while promoting original works of contemporary art.
The Yoruba word, ÒLÀJÚ is derived from West Africa and translates to “one who is enlightened”.
