Holiday Workshops

Can you 'pop'? Can you 'lock'? Popping superstar Taiwo Bamiduro will be delivering a series of free workshops for ages 7-10 and 11-16. Inspired by our exhibition, Africa State of Mind, Taiwo will show how urban and hip-hop dance moves are heavily influenced by traditional dances from across Africa. Learn more!

Resource Area

As well as our usual programme of fun-filled workshops and sessions for families at NAE, we also have a Family Resource Area and Activity Zone that can be explored at any time during opening hours. This season we're looking at Africa, have you visited any African countries? Would you like to?
