What We Do

With a focus on the performing arts of Africa, the mission of Wontanara is to celebrate diversity. Wontanara provides African cultural educational outreach within the community through dance and percussion classes, performances, and collaborations.

Why We're Great

Wontanara offers cultural exchange through the arts of several African nations and the African diaspora. It is our hope to enrich the lives of all whom we serve in our community and across the globe. We love to share our passion for this art form.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

Donations allow us to continue to educate those living in Columbia about African culture and arts by bringing in guest artists representing different African cultures. Everyone can enjoy performances and workshops with Africans in Columbia and beyond.
