Our Aim is to get the community to Know Africa Through MUSIC Promoting African music, culture, art, and diversity! Luton Afrofest is a premier initiative project of the UNIKA CHARITY. It is a recognized non-profit organization. Primarily, the goal of this event is to promote African music, art, and culture in the United Kingdom. We also aim to educate the non-African community about Africa’s traditional and contemporary art forms. In addition, we aim to bring awareness of the rich diversity of African culture through music and art. Through this project, we seek to bring Africans together to celebrate our culture and heritage.
We endeavor to provide Africans with a medium and an opportunity to display their talents and skills. We aim to promote diversity and interaction within the community. We plan to be inclusive and work with other community organisations to promote their services which we believe are most essential especially in our ethnic minority information of same sometimes is not readily available or well known. So by inviting other professionals from various organisations our community can be able to obtain information of what is available to the them. So come along join us watch the space for more details to come.
