Event description

Description

Café Pridia Africana is one of PRID’s informal events whose main target is to draw audience from African community in the United Kingdom and/or individuals, groups or organisations that have direct or indirect findings that are relevant to Africa to present, or listen to others make presentations.

Café Pridia Africana is a two monthly event organised by PRID. The event is expected to serve as a platform for between 2-4 presenters to make presentations about research findings in any discipline in which they have competence in. As well as experienced professionals, early career professionals and students are also welcome to make presentations or register as listening participants. A peculiar characteristic of the event is that presentations is expected to be made under informal but relaxed atmosphere in contrast to what obtains under a typical academic formal event. Whilst we expect presenters to present major findings from their concluded or on-going research to the audience, it is expected that this should be done using words that can be well understood by the least lay person in the audience. Consequently, as much as possible technical terms should be simplified, defined and/or explained at first mention, as the event is likely to attract diverse audience of different background.

We will provide a peep of a typical African menu to the audience who registered to participate at the event; food to be provided will be reflective of the registration fees paid. Participants are not allowed to bring in food from outside to the event venue. However, since the event will hold at a popular African restaurant in London, it is up to participants who intend to eat more food to order more after the event at their own expense.

Although everyone is welcome to attend the event as an audience, we expect participants with papers to present to fall under any of the following categories:

1. Anyone of African descent who live in the United Kingdom that has indicative presentations to present

2. Anyone that has indicative findings on any issue that is directly or indirectly relevant to Africa to present
