African Arts Academy Hosts Annual Fashion Fundraiser for San Francisco Bay Area Communities

Cultivating San Francisco communities through African arts and dance
By: African Arts Academy
SAN FRANCISCO - April 29, 2022 - PRLog -- The African Arts Academy will host its fifth annual fundraising event in the city of San Francisco on June 18, 2022 on the second floor of the War Memorial Veterans Building, 6PM to 9PM. This event, MODEFA (Modern Ethnic Fashion Show), will support the funding of arts education programs that specialize in the teachings of performing arts and crafts originating in Africa and of the African Diaspora to San Francisco residents.

MODEFA's inaugural fundraising event at MOAD (Museum of African Diaspora) in 2013 was dedicated to reaching more members of the greater San Francisco community, and to provide support and access to the African Arts Academy's programs. The AAA is dedicated to sharing the arts of Africa to San Francisco residents and children and families within the African diaspora.

This event showcases an exciting fashion runway show - blending cutting-edge, ethnically inspired haute couture. In celebration of cultural diversity, this year's showcase will coincide with International Ethnic Day, featuring one of San Francisco's native iconic Fashion designers, Colleen Queen. The evening will include a silent auction, fireside chat and a live performance of the Ivory Coast traditional dance mask Zaouli, by Executive Director, award-winning musical artist, Fely Tchaco; alongside guest Artists of the African Diaspora - featuring Eric Bli Bi, Malli Tagba, and Feline Fitness..

"It is important for me to share the beauty of Africa with our community," said Fely Tchaco. "So much of the world is influenced by this continent's art and dance, but there are so many misconceptions about the many contributions that African art has in the world."

African Arts Academy's MODEFA event has partnered with the chic fabric store Britex, Accounting Suites and the Royse Foundation in previous years and looks forward to connecting with even more companies and organizations in the months ahead.

To attend the MODEFA or to make a contribution to the African Arts Academy, interested parties can visit the African Arts Academy website or social media channels.

This event is going to be a fun, exciting evening of inspirational African arts and its ties to the community of San Francisco.
