About Us

Alena Museum is nonprofit 501(c)3 creative space that houses multi-disciplinary arts 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 Museum declares that "we are here" by providing access for the African Diaspora to create original work and keep dedicated space for creative expression, in the face of the rapid displacement of these communities as a result of gentrification.We are empowering our community to be active players in this new economy in order to directly mitigate displacement and marginalization. Our founder, Hager Seven Asfaha, opened the doors to Alena Museum in 2017.Seven is a conceptual artist and social entrepreneur dedicated to using creative mediums in finding solutions to issues affecting the African Diaspora.
