Victoria Square Project: African Fest 2017 on Elpidos Street

7–10 pm
Elpidos 13, Victoria Square, Elpidos 13, Athens

An event proposed by the African Network of Greece offers a breath of cool air to the evening of Friday, July 14 and gives the citizens of Athens the opportunity to taste some typical summer drinks of Africa. In collaboration with the Inter Alia organization, the Greek Forum of Migrants, and the Victoria Square Project, the African Network of Greece invites you to get to know the activities of our organizations, have a cool, alcohol-free drink, and attend a program of African dance and music.

On the occasion of the “Grapes of Wrath” project organized and implemented by Inter Alia in collaboration with organizations from Senegal, Kenya, Ghana, and Italy, we join forces to pursue our common goal. We hope to have the participation of everyone — Greek and foreign men and women, migrants, and locals.
