HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY GAFA
It's 2022 and we, the GAFA ARTS Collective GAC celebrate 10 years of making art in the world. Called into being in 2012 as a London celebration of 50 years of Samoan independence by Sani Muliaumaseali’i, GAFA has gone on to reshape the UK/European arts scape with an arts view that is both unique and unapologetic.
Our commemorative book ‘GAFA X recollections’ The first decade of the Gafa Arts Collective, London’ is a party of conversations by GAFA members above a whisper of a timeline as recalled by progenitor Sani Muliaumaseali’i. The spectacular images captured by several talents over the past 10 years, speak loudly to this courageous creativity. ‘GAFA X Recollections’ is designed by Luana Asiata and be available for purchase 30 September 2022 from

"I was actually moved at the end of the Kava Girls show, a bit choked up, I just had to say thank you for a great show it was much more than we both expected and deserved a bigger stage and audience.” Audience club
“The GAFA Samoa performance was outstanding, but it needs to be on stage again - my wish: Berlin - Auckland - Apia"
