We believe in change – for each one of us, for our communities, and for the world. The root of change is personal. It happens most profoundly through the burgeoning of self-belief, self-esteem and human dignity; as we discover who it is that we can be – at our best.
Below are some of the opportunities we offer to the community.
It is Amaka's conviction that the empowerment and regeneration of individuals and communities is not simply about the provision of food, shelter, and material wellbeing. It happens most profoundly through the burgeoning of self-belief, self-esteem and human dignity; as people discover who it is that they can be, as individuals and in community. Story-telling, through the medium of the arts, is a powerful tool for such transformation. However, unlike other educational processes, its outcomes are unpredictable, sometimes intangible and hard to measure in the short-term, but therefore, we believe, invaluable.

It was a joy and inspiration to welcome Ben Okafor for three days at the start of December
I know from my conversations with many of those who took part, that the whole process was extremely enjoyable, and affirming of the range of talents they possess. I am sure this won't be the last time that ABC and Archway work together in this way.
Just wanted to say how fantastic it was working with you and ABC on Friday at John Leggott College. I came away energised, inspired and optimistic- it was a huge pleasure and privilege to be there.
