With programs highlighting dance, storytelling, traditional
drumming and jewelry craft, the Harambee Institute has been
offering active arts programming to the St. Louis community since
1977. Providing much needed opportunities for creativity, the
visual and performing arts programs provide valuable learning
experiences for youth and their families, an avenue for expression
through the arts, increased self-esteem, and instill ethnic and
cultural awareness within the community. Workshops are held weekly,
and the Institute sponsors an annual Storytelling Summit showcasing
the Harambee Youth Group.
Documentation includes text and 12 color photos.
