Aya Academy

The Future is Female and African

Artists, musicians, writers and intellectuals manage cultural traffic that shapes informal narratives, identities and a sense of belonging within cities and beyond. They rewrite our understanding of cities as we know them.

Our Mission

At Aya, our mission is to empower women to become economically independent through the creative industries, allowing them to shape and rewrite the narrative of what it is to be African through their work.

AYA Academy's mission is to support young women into careers within the creative industries through several initiatives intended to enhance visibility, participation and education at different levels of the creative ecosystem.
