On the 2nd of November, there will be a celebration of African entertainment, film, fashion, food and music honouring the wealth of African creative talent on the continent, in the UK, and worldwide.
This year, in commemoration of the 120th anniversary, The Royal African Society will host Creative Africa – a celebration to be held at the outstanding Aqua Shard. Guests can expect the best African cuisine, and fashion from some of the most prominent African designers Ozwald Boateng, Alphadi Sidahmed Seidnaly and Maison Artc, high calibre musical performances, including from Chineke! and Osibisa, and an exclusive auction of contemporary African artworks and other items by Sotheby’s.
The event will support the work the society does to promote African voices and creativity, especially through Film Africa and Africa Writes festivals, their educational and journalistic training programmes and their advocacy on policy & business issues, highlighting the importance of innovation and communication in creating a flourishing future for all Africans on the continent and in the diaspora.
