The Africa Centre Summer Festival 2014

The theme of this year’s Summer Festival is the “African Textile Experience”

Mark you calendat – August 4, 2014 – The Africa Centre is a London-based charity that aims to promote awareness of African cultural and developmental issues in the UK. Every year we organise a Summer Festival in London’s iconic Covent Garden to celebrate contemporary African arts, culture and business.
The centrepiece of this year’s festival will be an inspiring programme, curated by Magie Relph of the African Fabric Shop and advised by Chris Spring, Curator of the African Collection at the British Museum, showcasing the rich tapestry of African textiles in all their beauty and diversity which will engage, inspire and fascinate you. Learn how to make your own Africa-inspired textiles at our craft workshops or take home a memento from our African craft stalls in Covent Gardens Piazza.

The day will give you an opportunity to see, touch, hear and taste the best that contemporary Africa has to offer. Feel the energy of Africa through vibrant dance and acrobatic performances. Have fun for all the family with African face and mask painting. Move to the beat of Africa with live music, drummers and DJs. Savour the flavour of Africa with authentic cuisine.

Join us in celebrating the vibrancy, creativity and sheer joy of contemporary fabrics from all over Africa.
