Africa takes centre stage at Covent Garden!

Dear TEDxEuston Community,

The Africa Centre is holding the first ever “Africa Centre Summer Festival” and would like to spread the word to Friends and Supporters!

This exciting, 2-day event, curated by the acclaimed artist Yinka Shonibare MBE, will be held over the weekend of the 3rd/ 4th August 2013 in and around the Covent Garden Piazza.

Our hope is that the African community across the UK and beyond will come together to celebrate the best of Africa’s contemporary art, music and fashion, as well as the Africa Centre’s unique role in supporting African culture, enterprise and education in the UK.

Highlights of the festival include, a performance by Tunde Jegede, a catwalk show by Africa Fashion Week London and a live performance by headline act Nneka. This event is free to members of the public and the Africa Centre sincerely hopes that you will join us for a challenging, provocative African festival, reflecting the progressive modernism that has emerged post-independence.

The Africa Centre’s Summer Festival is expected to become one of the largest African gatherings in the UK and we would very much appreciate your contribution to its continuing success.
