Amsterdam, The Netherlands

On Saturday the 5th of November it is time for Africaday 2016: the event on Africa and international cooperation! 

This event, organised by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies in cooperation with Foundation Max van der Stoel,  with the support of the Party of European Socialists and various other partners, aims at celebrating and analysing the richness of relations between Europe and Africa. 

Cultural programme

A new element in the programme is the exciting cultural program in the ‘Grote Zaal’ that will accompany the official programme of the gathering. This Africaday, Yangambi will organise a special edition of the iAfrica Festival. The whole afternoon, there will be live music by Thaïs Diarra and Badi, among others, as well as  interviews about music, art and more. Several authors with African roots will also enter the stage and we will screen the Ethiopian film “Lamb”.

“Africa at Night”

Of course, the Africaday is not complete without the afterparty “Africa at Night”. This year, Project Nana will organise the fifth edition of this great afterparty. This special edition is one you don’t want to miss out on. Besides live gigs and crazy beats, there is a delicious African meal from The Ostrich waiting for you. Be sure to finish your Africaday in style with “Africa at Night” at Desmet Studio’s!
