culture and heritage

art and crafts in its variety

people and the environment

medicinal plants and indigenous plant uses

history of beads and beadwork

peoples way of life

traditional music

traditional healing

indigenous knowledge, science and technology

traditional African religion and indigenous belief systems

African cosmology, etc.

The centre will carry on collecting information and aims to have a comprehensive database and archive. The centre is also a place where the artists and crafters can meet, interact, produce and promote their work, and where workshops, interactive debates and performances can be organised.
