About the event
Since its inception, the Emory African Students Association has worked to ensure that undergraduate and graduate students of African descent can gather to celebrate the expansive histories and cultures that the continent has to offer that are reflected in Emory's student body. This diversity is displayed in our largest annual event: Taste of Africa. The event brings together members of the Emory community, the greater Atlanta African community, and others who are linked with Africa or the African Diaspora. Taste of Africa features food, music, dancers, artists, and other acts to show the audience an authentic cultural display. Our performers consist of local Atlanta artists, both students and non-students. Each year we showcase an upcoming African fashion designer.
Why should you sponsor?
In supporting our event, sponsors further support the mission of both ASA and Emory as a whole: to showcase diversity and cultural education.
The members of Emory's ASA can support your organization through continued advertisement both before and after or event through our socal media pages. Furthremore, ASA members have an expansive reach within both the Emory and Atlanta wide community. Increased awareness to ASA will increase awareness of your company/organization within the Atlanta community.
In sponsoring our event, you will have ensured promotion in our program and during the event ( depending on which package is chosen). Taste of Africa has been attended by a variety of people, not limited to art gallery owners and representatives of the City of Atlanta's Cultural Affairs Office.
If you would like to be a part of creating this amazing program, then please consider donating at the bronze, silver, or gold levels as you are able. Thank you for your cooperation!
Adefolakunmi Adenugba is the President of Emory's ASA for the 2016- 2017 academic year. She is interested in visual arts, shown through her internships at both the High Museum and Creative Milieu Consulting.
ASA is a student run organization which provides a forum for students of African and non-African descent to come together and share their experiences and interests with students who hold the same values. Our mission as a cultural organization is to raise awareness of social, political, and environmental issues that affect all countries in Africa and other nations affected by the African diaspora. In addition, ASA also strives to educate and inform members of the Emory University community about African culture and encourage unity among the aforementioned groups.
With well over 300 people in attendance last year, Taste of Africa was a large success and this year’s event aims to host about 400 attendees. Our cultural event will feature food from a variety of countries, performers from West, North, East, Central, and South Africa, and educational components that showcase the charities that our organization supports.
