Learning and Participation
South Asian dance inspires and enriches lives. We create high impact arts programmes that promote physical and mental wellbeing for older adults, as well as creative learning and skills development for young people.
If you’re interested in partnering with Akademi, or would like to book a workshop or residency, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

We asked our Learning and Participation artists to reflect on their experiences of working differently during lockdown and their blog posts give a fascinating insight into their approaches.
