Work Planned For 2017
Harambee (Swahili) Let’s get together-Pasadia (Spanish) to spend the day
A small festival that takes place in Barnard Castle. It’s the first Afro Fusion Music and Dance festival in the North East of England and our aims are to celebrate the diverse music, cultures and fusions of the African and Latin Diaspora; to get folks out of the city and into the country; to create a space where musicians, visual artists, dancers, and theatre makers who specialize or have an interest in African, Caribbean, and Latin cultures can network and collaborate and more.
BlackPoppyRose will be executing interactive workshops on this AMAZING WEEKEND
