Since its inception in 1989, Ifetayo Cultural Arts Academy has been dedicated to supporting the creative, educational, and vocational development of youth of African descent in Brooklyn and surrounding communities. The organization’s name comes from the West African Yoruba word "ifetayo" meaning "love is enough for joy" and captures Ifetayo’s approach to empowering youth, studying culture through the arts, and redefining community. The Ifetayo Youth Ensemble (IYE) is an award-winning performance group, recognized for their combination of artistic excellence and exploration of social issues. Members are youth of the African Diaspora ages 12 – 19 residing in under resourced communities of central Brooklyn, who thrive under the opportunity for education, art-making, and self-determination. IYE creates high-caliber original, socially relevant, and interdisciplinary performance works.
