Go Africa Cultural Community Hub Workshops 2021

Community & Culture

Go Africa is an African Diaspora community-led cultural hub and festival proceeded by a series of workshops. Powered by the Mayor of London

Go Africa is a movement to mobilise the African & Caribbean creative communities to come together to showcase talent, art, culture, education alongside provide wellbeing workshops to support young adults and children.

We work with a collection of independent businesses with designs spanning the African continent, we will be displaying everything from bold statement necklaces inspired by the continent to ethical textile home products featuring domestic home wares from Congo, Art work from South Africa to natural skincare from Ghana. Entertainment by resident Djs and local African drummers, artists and dance groups

We are delighted to be partnering with the St Mary’s Community hub and Ringcross Community Centre based in Islington. The workshops will feature the African arts in all disciplines including literature, visual arts, textiles, music, adornment, and cuisine to name a few. All workshops will deliver fun edutainment sessions for all ages and genres of the African Diaspora and Islington communities.

The exciting plus to the program is the summer event which will feature the sound clashes between Steel pan musicians Guyana VS Trinidad and drumming from Ghana VS Senegal, Cuisine from Gambia VS Somalia from gracious black men and women who have positive aspirations for the visibility of the African Diaspora in creative practices, to name few highlights to come.
