Event description

Description

The Young Sierra Leonean Beyond Freetown presents to you, the Sierra Leone Arts & Culture festival 2019 #SLACfest.


After two successful years, #SLACfest returns to an even bigger venue bringing another day of celebrating and showcasing young Sierra Leoneans both at home and in the diaspora.



We will kickoff the day with photo exhibitions and illustrations from young Sierra Leoneans across the globe as we welcome guests to a selection of Sierra Leonean snacks.

Activities on the day include a presentation on Sierra Leone's history, a talk on health and wellbeing as Africans, with a focus on Sierra Leoneans, and a 20mins introduction to reading and writing Krio, using text supported by Sierra Leone’s legendary linguist Daphne Pratt.

Other activities include a poetry film showcase, film interviews, a look into the future of Sierra Leone and a topical discussion with some of our young people.

Guests will also get a chance to meet some of our young entrepreneurs, indulge in their products, and be in with a chance of winning some merchandise in our raffle. Proceeds from our raffle will be donated to our supported charity!

You’ll also get a chance to witness one or two of our images come alive with Augumented Reality technology from Kugali, a company that focuses on telling stories inspired by African culture.

The second part of the day features a host of young people in conversation, keynote speeches, and a treat of live spoken word poetry, acoustic music and dance.


DO YOU LIKE FOOD?
There’ll be an option to purchase lunch provided by our specially selected vendors, the Krio Kanteen and Afrinape, serving authentic Sierra Leone inspired food. Vegan options available. Traditionally inspired beverages will also be available to purchase on the day.

LAST ENTRY IS AT 3PM!!!
