Yon Afro Collective


Yon Afro Collective is a collective of black women based in Scotland focused on centring their experience of blackness through collective activism and collaboration with the purpose to create a sense of belonging.

The collective exists as a space to encourage the sharing of lived experiences through the medium of creativity, political activism, collaboration and collective working. It has offered hope for a sustained future of a black community in Scotland.

Yon Afro Collective is fully inclusive in its approach and welcomes black trans, queer, non-binary, disabled members from all faiths and religious backgrounds. The collective welcomes support from our allies and community of collectives of colour in Scotland and beyond her borders. 

Yon Afro Collective





Yon Afro offers safe spaces for Women of Colour living in Scotland to meet together in private and public spaces. For many of our members this is the first time that we are connecting with women who share our experience of isolation and marginalisation.
