Kayd Somali Arts and Culture, in collaboration with Redsea Cultural Foundation and other partners, are proud to present Somali Week Festival 2019.
Somali Week Festival 2019 will run from Friday 18th October to Saturday 26th October 2019. It will be held in venues across London. The British Library, Oxford House in Bethnal Green, Rich Mix, Southbank Centre, The Peoples Palace and Broadway Theatre.
The theme for this year’s festival deals with how artists, activists and musicians respond and react in times of political change. Using Brexit in the United Kingdom as a catalyst, we look at how the Somali Diaspora both in the UK, US, as well as mainland Europe and Canada unpack what it means to be Somali both in the Somali Horn as well as abroad during this globally transformative period.
