EdLab Challenge: Support the Amani Creatives music project

The Amani Live music events are a part of the Amani Creatives project. In 2016 they happen the first Sunday of the month at Band on the Wall.

Amani Creatives ( AC ) is a not-for-profit organisation based in Manchester – UK and operating in the ares of arts, heritage and development. Amani Creatives supports emerging and professional artists performing and practicing music and other art forms originating in Africa to increase their ambitions, exposure and employability.


Our challenge to students is to some support for you around gathering audience feedback and some of the performance work itself  to support funding application to the arts council and similar. Also, we would like help to communicate the aims of the project to our wider audience.

The Amani Live music events have wider social aims beyond the delivery of good music. They act as a hub for musicians and music educators and the African diaspora community and supporters.
