- What We Do
The Africa Centre is dedicated to offering the African diaspora and all people interested in African heritage, economic outlook, cultural trends and business innovations, a platform for experiencing events, engaging in debates and lectures of artistic, cultural or business focus as well as developing programmes and collaborations. Since December 2016, the Africa Centre houses a new co-working space championing Africa’s creative and entrepreneurial spirit: THE HUB. Totaling 2216 sq ft split across ground and mezzanine floors, THE HUB boasts hot desks and studio space, in a décor inspired by British-Nigerian designer Yinka Ilori.
In December 2016 the Africa Centre opens ‘THE HUB’ – a collaborative work-space for creatives and entrepreneurs with an African interest, connections or heritage – and announces its first member, Colourful Radio, now broadcasting live from their studio at THE HUB.
Ideally located in Arch 28 Union Yard, Union Street, London SE1 0LR, THE HUB, which décor is inspired by British-Nigerian designer Yinka Ilori, offers members daily access to hot-desks, permanent workspace as well as meeting and lounge areas.
THE HUB welcomes architects, designers, media, non-profits and tech start-ups with African related interests or projects to take part in this innovative new concept.
Members receive access to professional workshops and gatherings, and priority bookings for Africa Centre cultural events including curated activities from talks and forums to performances and exhibitions.
