Black History Month

New for Black History Month 2012 is Education Group's African Mask Workshop. In addition to traditional favourites during this period such as African drumming and African dance, we have introduced our unique African Mask Painting workshop.

Every child paints and keeps their own wooden Dan style mask which originates from the Ivory Coast, Western Africa. The colours used symbolise different aspects of the history of the Dan tribe and the wood used is from the most sustainable fast growing wood. We source our masks from local communities promoting the sustainability and fair trade aspects of this workshop.

We provide additional resources highlighting sustainability, environmental and historical aspects of these African communities. Many schools also choose to combine this workshop with our African Mask Dance Workshop.
