Hello travellers,

An Africa Day event will be hosted in Antwerp this spring! Africa Day is the annual commemoration of the founding of the Organization for African Unity (now called the African Union) on 25 May Protected content . It is an opportunity to celebrate African diversity, highlight the rich cultural history and the potential of the African continent, reverse entrenched stereotypes, and inspire the African diaspora to think about the future of the continent.

This Africa Day event will have Ghana as the host country and be a mix of a conference and a festival. There will be fascinating conversations, book sessions, a market, good food, and a lively atmosphere with live music. A fascinating mash-up of ideas and creative vibes!
