Somali Week Festival 2019
Kayd Somali Arts & Culture, with its partners, is proud to present its 11th anniversary of Kayd’s Somali Week Festival. The festival, which is an integral part of Black History Month, will run from 18-26 October 2019 across London.
This year's theme is ‘Art & Activism: Art and Culture During Times of Global Change’ featuring a brand-new Somali-British p lay and a new cohort of both famous and upcoming talent in both local and landmark locations across London. This year’s festival deals with how artists, activists and musicians respond and react to times of political change by using Brexit in the United Kingdom as a catalyst, to unpack what it means to be Somali and African in 2019 both in the Somali Horn as well as in the Diaspora during this globally transformative period.
