Elimu has been participating in Carnival since 1980.
Our aim is to promote the arts of Carnival, particularly among young people.
To be innovative, to be unique, to be inclusive.
To experiment. To support others. To teach. Each One Teach One.
A CHARITABLE INCORPORATED ORGANISATION (CIO), NO. 1171774 that plays Mas on the global stage. Joining with other creative partners to showcase the excellence of our artists and performers.
Together with Paddington Arts Centre, we created Elimu Paddington Arts Band to play Mas at Notting Hill, Hackney and Kingston upon Thames.
