Calling everyone for this unforgettable, once in a lifetime occasion!! Pop in for a very special late evening social at the gallery, where we will host a decadent evening of stimulating discussion, fine food, and music and art that flows with the vibe of our exhibition.
The Biospheric Foundation, Epoch 6 Urban Lab, and 5 North Architects will speak about “Urban West Africa”, their series of interventions about sustainable and forward-thinking design and development in the rapidly urbanising African geography. They have also built an internet kiosk for a live communications feed to Bamako, Mali, especially for the event!
Our music and dance performance for the evening, courtesy of Band on the Wall, stars Jokeh Sillah and Santa Yalla Arts. Jokeh is a dancer from the Gambia and she will be performing with three accompanying drummers. We will also be showing a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary ‘Democracy in Dakar’, a film about youth, hip-hop, and politics in Africa. And, there will be special West African nibbles provided by Q Café, as well as our own bar, and special exhibitions just for this event. Don’t miss this incredible evening!
Saturday, 18th of August, 7.30 – 10.30 PM, FREE (excluding bar)
