Nat'l Black Arts Festival Celebrates Kwanzaa

 ATLANTA – National Black Arts Festival (NBAF) this holiday season will present ‘Kwanzaa Korner’ –an interactive learning experience that teaches the principles of Kwanzaa through hands-on activities. This free event takes place Saturday, December 11, 2010, at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library: Central Library, in the Children’s Department from 10 am to 12 noon.
“Kwanzaa is a uniquely African American holiday which provides a spiritual and educational bridge between Africa and the African Diaspora. This, the 44th celebration of Kwanzaa, provides an opportunity to families and communities to gather and reaffirm a commitment to self development and unity,” states Dr. Collette Hopkins, Director of NBAF Education and Public Programs. “This workshop provides participants with the ‘nuts and bolts’ of celebrating Kwanzaa and children with the opportunity to make gifts to give to members of their family.”
NBAF invites children and parents to join us for this year’s Kwanzaa Korner. Activities for the day include a workshop for parents interested in learning how to apply arts-based character building, hands-on-activities for young children and arts-based curriculum for educational professionals, specifically developed to teach Kwanzaa principles throughout the year — at work, home and at play.
Pre-registration is required for all those interested in attending this event. 

NBAF (National Black Arts Festival) is one of the premier national and international presenters of the art, music and culture of people of African descent. The mission of NBAF is to engage, cultivate and educate diverse audiences about the arts and culture of the African Diaspora and provide opportunities for artistic and creative expression. NBAF produces year-round education and public programming, as well as events presented in collaboration with our partners, in addition to the annual summer festival.
Major funding for this organization is provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners through the Fulton County Arts Council, Georgia Council for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs, U.S. Department of Education, Georgia Humanities Council, and the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau.
NBAF was recently granted a $1 million 5-year restricted grant to participate in Leading for the Future (LFF), a program of the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF), funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The grant focuses specifically on the use of technology and new media as a tool for communication and development of new audiences as well as the dissemination of creative ideas and expression.

NBAF’s year-round Education and Public Programs are structured to provide children, families, educators and the general public with the means to explore and understand the history and cultures of Africa and the African Diaspora. NBAF’s educational programming employs Experiential Education, a philosophy and a methodology in which the participants are purposefully engaged in direct experiences and focused reflection in order to increase knowledge, develop skills and clarify values. NBAF’s multi-faceted educational programs include: Professional Development Courses, Adult Workshops, Study Tours, an annual Summer Institute, and the ever-popular Children’s Education Village. NBAF serves approximately 12,000 people each year through its Education and Public programs.
