Afrifest was created to mark the unique input black performers and artists have made to the artistic and cultural landscape of Scotland. All events are free and designed to appeal to a wide range of age groups and tastes.
Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, which had capacity audiences over its 2 days, 2017’s festival will showcase visual and performing arts, as well as the culture of people of African descent, supporting artistic expression and the pursuit of excellence and innovation.
