Event description

Description

Africa Week 2018 is a week-long programme of activities taking place at across different campuses at UWE Bristol and within the city between March 12-16th 2018.

The programme brings to Bristol inspiring figures from the African community and the diaspora to engage, promote and discuss historical and current issues about the continent and the future of Africa. In the past, we have hosted notable African figures including diplomats and ambassadors and other notable individuals like Leila Abou Lela (Caine Prize Winner for Literature, Nana Ayebia Clarke (MBE), Florence Ayisi (Academy Award nominated film director) and many more.

Join us for a discussion at the Africa Week 2018 Educational Forum – an integral part of the Africa Week programme. At this event we engage or delegates on educational topics with a focus on BAME, culture, inclusivity and celebrating diversity. Last year, focused on the theme of cultural identify and a challenging panel discussion “Does your Hair Matter”. This year, in the face of recent global events and political rhetoric, we have chosen to focus our attention on supporting and enabling “Re-integration Back Home” by challenging myths and assumption doing business, or finding success back home – in the African context.

Programme of events includes

  • Showcasing projects and initiatives including ongoing research in and about Africa
  • Panel discussions with expert speakers on the topic “Moving Back to Africa – Finding Success as a Returnee”
  • Workshops on enterprise and setting up businesses, careers etc.
  • Networking with professional organisations and exhibiting companies.

Finally, you would get to try some African Inspired pastries and light bites (not one to miss!).
