The 36th Annual MOJA Arts Festival is scheduled for Thursday, September 26th through Sunday, October 6th. The event, which includes many free activities, celebrates African-American and Caribbean Arts.
The 10-day festival will include activities like visual arts, classical music, dance, gospel, jazz, poetry, R&B music, storytelling, theatre, children’s activities, traditional crafts, ethnic food, and more.
Nearly half of MOJA’s events are admission-free, and the remainder are offered at modest ticket prices.
The MOJA Arts Festival is a multi-disciplinary festival produced and directed by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the MOJA Planning Committee, a community arts and cultural group, and the MOJA Advisory Board, a group of civic leaders who assist with fundraising and advocacy.
"Moja," a Swahili word meaning “one,” is the appropriate name for this festival celebration of harmony among all people in our community. The Festival highlights the many African-American and Caribbean contributions to western and world cultures. In addition to its myriad arts presentations, MOJA also includes an active and busy educational outreach component of workshops in the public schools and senior outreach in senior citizen homes.
