What Had Happened Was... - by Robbie Sweeney (79).jpg


Afro Urban Society is a creative community of brilliant artists and culture workers dedicated to celebrating the unique expressions of Urban Africans through performance and community activism.

Through original and curated arts & event production, popular arts education and community engagement we exist to dispel the perception that all Africans have a single story. We create spaces for people of African descent all over the world to tell our own stories. We celebrate the reality that Africans are of many cultures and nations. Afro Urban Society is created and driven by our constituents, our context, history and identities. We are the community that we serve.
