Culture over everything.
Alena Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit, creative space that houses multi-disciplinary art and work studios to cultivate the cultural richness of the African diaspora. In the African language of Tigrinya, "Alena" translates to "We are here". Alena accomplishes this by providing access to space for the African diaspora to create original work and share it with the community in the face of rapid displacement from gentrification. We are empowering our community to be active players in this new economy in order to directly mitigate the displacement and marginalization of our communities.
