Afro-Caribbean Cultural Showcase
About this event
We are excited to announce that we are in the initial stages of planning for an ACS x UBUNTU Cultural Showcase. This showcase aims to highlight Scotland's African and Caribbean diaspora and celebrate our rich and diverse cultures. We are curating a showcase featuring performances, art, musicians, and, notably, a culinary exploration of our cultural heritage.
We are looking for volunteers to help set up and take down the event. The event will take place on the 29th of March.
*Free food and drinks will be provided on the day. You are also more than free to enjoy the showcase (you will not have to pay for tickets)*
