Under the theme of Pan Africanism, Feminism and the Next Generation, the 3rd Kwame Nkrumah Intellectual and Cultural Festival will be a celebration of Dr. Nkrumah’s philosophy of self-reliance, freedom from imperialism by pursuing culture, science and technology to enhance the condition of all people.

The Festival is a vibrant platform for intellectual debate on the cultural and economic architecture that is required to turn African material and cultural resources into decent livelihoods and wellbeing of Africa’s people.

 

Here is what the Festival will achieve…

 
  • Curate and promote creative cultural products from across the African region, especially those produced by women, the youth, but also other marginalized African groups.
  • Interrogate how the African community values, claims and protects African cultural and economic assets, and develops these to serve their own interests in the face of an unjust global regime of trade regulations and tariffs that has deepened North-South inequality and social injustice.

"It is clear that we must find an African solution to our problems, and that this can only be found in African unity. Divided we are weak; united, Africa could become one of the greatest forces for good in the world."

Dr. Kwame Nkrumah
