Enkutash: Celebrating Ethiopian New Year
Saturday 10 September 2.00pm – 6.00pm
We mark the end of Rastafari in Motion and harvest a new legacy on the evening of Ethiopian New Year. Take part in a range of celebratory customs drawn from the homeland as we give you an exclusive taste of Ethiopia’s cultural traditions. Witness and indulge in an ancient coffee making ceremony, as we fill the courtyard with the aroma of freshly roasted and brewed ‘Buna’ accompanied with traditional Ethiopian cuisine.
Listen to the highlights this summer’s programme of events and talks to gain a more holistic understanding of the Rastafari in Motion exhibition, before answering the question: what do we envision the future legacy of this exhibition to be and how can you support in making this happen?
