Our activities are as diverse as the people we know. We passionately believe in actions,that, no matter how small, can change futures. Sometimes it is means planting only a mustard seed, but careful selection of the soil and strategic nurturing can produce a fruitful tree.
In 1998 we founded an arts centre in East London for the purpose of drawing marginalised artists together, introducing them to successful west end stars. Many of our current activitieshave grown out of the networks that developed since then. Through their involvement in the centre, artists gained skills and also became aware of the role played by Events in building platforms to express transforming ideas and impact generations and societies. These growing relationship have led us to do numerous and diverse things, large and small in scale – all with lasting impact:
NJ Arts -London promotes social cohesion in London through the performing arts: gifted and talented concerts, annual FEST, workshops, celebrations of diversity through creativity in music and dance. Our Events lead many individuals to merge together to produce one beautiful sound. Our inspired producers build platforms where truth, hope and beauty challenge this generation….changing societies and futures.
Cross-cultural events: peace conferences, celebrations, seminars, workshops, conferences – transforming thinking through communications, relationships and togetherness.
