RichMix London - October 20th : ALGERIAN CULTURAL FESTIVAL

samedi 6 octobre 2012

"Algerian Cultural Collective (ACC), in partnership with the Algerian Solidarity Campaign (ASC), presents :

the Algerian Cultural Festival (ACF), London/UK.

Dear members and friends of Algeria Solidarity Campaign (ASC)

ASC is proud to be the Official Partner of the “Algerian Cultural Collective” (ACC) in organising a wonderful initiative :

the first, UK-based, Algerian Cultural Festival (ACF),

to mark Algeria’s 50th independence anniversary.

and to bring the Algerian culture in all its richness and diversity to a wider audience.

The event will take place

on Saturday 20th October

From 12pm to 1am in the morning

at the Rich Mix Cultural Centre in London, UK

see below links for full details

ASC believes that the festival will be an excellent opportunity to reflect on the anti-colonial struggle, contemplate post-independence Algeria, as well as examine legacies bequeathed to a young nation looking ahead towards a better future.

The ACF has been conceived as an independent and not-for-profit initiative. It was born out of a desire to both commemorate this momentous anniversary in Algerian history, an important date little talked about in Britain, and to promote the country’s rich cultural heritage in all its diversity, which is under-stated, under-covered and often misunderstood abroad.
The ACC’s own long-term vision revolves around "sowing the seeds to nurture intermarriage of cultural initiatives between Algeria and the UK".

ASC, on the other hand, campaigns for genuine, peaceful and democratic change in Algeria and strives to provide a forum and a sphere of dialogue, in which the exchange of ideas and knowledge concerning the challenges facing the Algerian people is made possible. Our organisation is, therefore, strongly committed to the long-term vision of the Collective, in building a more vibrant, open and cohesive Algerian community, here in the UK.
