Mission & Vision

Our mission is to educate young people in the music and dance of South Sudan as a communal and spiritual expression of life. Orupaap is dedicated to inter-cultural exchange and collaboration between the all the communities in South Sudan to promote peace and stability and to help people overcome the trauma of war.

Furthermore the Orupaap Cultural Foundation seeks to promote collaboration between all artists and cultures in South Sudan and is committed to preserving, developing, promoting and celebrating the dynamic diversity of culture within the country to provide a platform for inter-cultural exchange both within the country and internationally.

To realize this vision we offer a structured training program for dancers and musicians, offer residencies to guardians of culture, invite artists from other states in the country to perform and give workshops in music and dance, share their experiences and exchange knowledge with others. We also run education programs for children in schools, host regular performances at the Centre and host a Festival in December every year.
This is the true spirit of Orupaap
