The Afro Latino Festival Team
We have been busy organising this year’s festival, and as the festival continues to grow the meeting costs to showcase this FREE event has become a huge task for us.
So, we are launching a crowdfunding campaign for this year’s festival through Pozible. We would like your help to reach our target and also spread the word.
Please show your support by sharing our Crowdfunding Campaign through word of mouth, email and social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instragram! our hashtag is #afrolatinofest
Thank you for your support and let’s keep the rhythm in the community alive!
Yes, it has been confirmed! the date for the next Afro Latino Festival is Saturday 22 March 2014.
The Afro Latino Festival vision aims to highlight and strengthen the cultural heritage of both Latin American and African communities in Sydney by bringing them together to promote their cultural diversity and celebrate their cultural heritage through a biennial festival.
Afro Latino Festival 2014 is a free community led festival showcasing live music, cultural performances, song, dance, arts and crafts, a fashion parade of contemporary designs inspired by traditional Latino and African designs, sports and food from the Latin American and African continents.
So, pencil it in your diaries, smart-phones and save the date! more details about the festival coming soon…
We wanted to say thank you to everyone who came along last Saturday. There was great vibe, great music, great dancing, food, soccer, drumming and everything else!! Thank you to the volunteers, partners, sponsors and performers and of course all of YOU who attended and made the festival possible despite the rain. Rumour is more than 2000 people attended this year’s Afro Latino Festival!!
We’ll be posting photos of the event very soon, we’ve seen some preview pics and they look amazing! You’ll be hearing from us from time to time for anything Afro Latino we might come across. To keep updated, please join our e-newsletter and for any other queries email: laura_l_zamora (at) yahoo.com.au
For now our Festival Coordinator will be enjoying a well deserved rest at the WOMADelaide Festival this weekend!
We leave you with a post festival write up from local newspaper Liverpool Champion
Everything’s ready for tomorrow but it doesn’t look like gods are on our side so we are expecting some rain, however the festival WILL NOT BE CANCELLED! If you’re not familiar with the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, it’s an amazing venue and has capacity for over a thousand people indoors so we’ll be nice and dry! :D
Now on another note, today we were advised one of Casulas Powerhouse car parks has been affected by rain and it’s not safe for parking at the moment so we strongly want to encourage you to take public transport tomorrow. The Powerhouse is literally in front of Casula train station. Click here to check directions on how to get there. You can also park at Glenfield or Warwick Farm train stations and then catch a train to Casula station.
We really hope a little rain doesn’t discourage you to come, we hope to see you there!
