The Africa Centre
The Africa Centre in London is building a community of forward-thinking members dedicated to providing the African diaspora, and everyone with an interest in Africa, a platform to facilitate the cross-fertilisation and the creation of synergies around culture, education, art and business.
While its primary remit is to support African entrepreneurs in the UK, the opportunity to provide a link with the African Continent speaks to a demand from communities seeking innovative ways and incentives to grow stronger together.
In 2018 BCA and Mrs Ann Banner have lent artwork, previously displayed in the former BCA offices in Bankside, to The Africa Centre.
An untitled piece of Nigerian bead artwork by well known Nigerian artist the Late Chief Jimoh Buraimoh, a gift to the Late Peter Banner OBE, a past Chairman of BCA when he left Nigeria, and an African Tribal war scene, history and provenance unknown, presented to The Business Council for Africa.
