Afrikult. workshops are interactive, fun and do not require previous knowledge of African literature. We deliver workshops for all age ranges, and have worked with schools, universities, cultural events and festivals.

In 2017, Afrikult. partnered with Royal African Society’s Education Programme to facilitate workshops for primary and secondary schools in the UK. In 2018, Afrikult. launched its creative writing series with colleges and secondary schools.

Workshop material from ‘Mapping West African Literature’ workshop with Year 10s!

Testimonials from our outreach workshops:


– Participants from Mapping African Literature (age group 18 – 24)

I think it was good to start off the workshop with the history utilising the term ‘scramble for Africa’ but this topic area probably would have needed not just the whole workshop session but a couple of others to really delve in. It was good to give a snapshot to start it off.

I thought it was a great opening theme for the whole workshop, it provided some context and I thought that good texts and quotes were used to illustrate the theme and spark discussion.

Enjoyed the questions we discussed

I liked the ending to this workshop as it gave the opportunity for us as participants to no longer be the ‘outsiders’ looking in to the books and characters but to suddenly become the protagonists by considering how we related to each quote and what it meant to us

– Participants from Mapping West African Literature (age group 13 – 15 years)

It was really nice and I learned a lot. I am going to read Things Fall Apart.

It was a really good workshop because it allowed our voices to be heard. Another point it was relatable to me in a sense even though I am not of African heritage.

The workshop was highly interactive and everybody was able to participate and have an opinion.

Really thought-provoking. My Year 10’s felt quite overwhelmed to start with. I thought you got a load out of them!

– Participants from Writing Africa: 50 Years (age range 18 – 54 years)

More time 🙂 i really enjoyed it
