It's Our Anniversary!

Abeni Cultural Arts founded on April 1, 2006 in Savannah, Ga. The word Abeni hails from the West African country of Nigeria. It means we asked for her, and she is ours. It is with that intention, to own ones talent, that the Savannah based arts organization, Abeni Cultural Arts was founded.
Abeni is dedicated to encouraging artists to reach their fullest potential in their chosen field. Abeni's Mission is to encourage artists of various genres to nurture and challenge their passion for their art. We do this by fostering the creation of engaging, meaningful, and culturally significant programs.
Abeni believes that it is essential to establish an atmosphere in which students and instructors have artistic choices, share in the artistic process, and learn the value of artistic expression. Dance is the primary art form on which Abeni draws its inspiration. Drama, visual arts, music, and voice are also integrated into its makeup. Collaborations with fellow artists and other special projects are implemented in an effort to bring similar organizations together in order to accomplish one goal: to embrace the fact that we are different, yet the same.
Abeni Cultural Arts has been under the Artistic Direction of Muriel Miller & Managed by Darowe J. McMillon, since 2006.
