Since our beginning in 1993, GIWAYEN MATA have served as a vessel for audiences to travel through time – past, present and future experiencing cultures of the African Diaspora through riveting rhythms, evocative movements and soul stirring songs.
Over the years the Atlanta City Council has granted GIWAYEN MATA several proclamations including the City of Atlanta Phoenix award. For three years, GIWAYEN MATA received the Creative Loafing Best of Atlanta Awards for Best Local, Int’l World Music Act. Numerous other awards punctuate our performance timeline as well.
For much of our twenty years, GIWAYEN MATA has raised most of our operating capital through performance revenues earned. Individuals have made donations, which have been helpful, appreciated, and well used. Individual donations like these coupled with corporate donations and foundation grants help us to successfully share our gifts with the world.
We need your help, through your sponsorships and your in kind donations, to sustain GIWAYEN MATA as the thriving long lasting cultural arts institution that it has proven capable of being. Your sponsorships will support the classes and events of our future performance seasons as well as the diverse programming and community outreach that sustains knowledge of the rich cultures of the African Diaspora.
Sponsor GIWAYEN MATA today and join us in raising cultural arts awareness throughout our community, country, and our world.
