It’s all systems go for FetAfrik 2009


Entitled The Glamour of African Attire, the exhibition will take place at the National Library.

While the official opening ceremony at 10am on Monday is for invitees only, members of the public will be able to view it later that day and then until May 29.

FetAfrik activities continue on May 28 with a fair aimed at promoting the traditional knowledge and skills of Seychelles.

The three-day Seychelles Heritage Fair, to be hosted in the Camion Hall grounds, Victoria, will focus on knowledge that has been available locally for many years and has been handed down from generation to generation.
On May 29, the Creole Institute will host a presentation and exhibition on the traditional Tinge dance. The aim is to raise awareness among the public on the place Tinge holds in Seychelles music and dance.

FetAfrik 2009 will end on the evening of May 29 with Lafoli Afriken, an evening of African traditional dances, Tinge by the Ting Kapela group, poems and a fashion parade. Tickets for this event, which will take place at the International Conference Centre (ICCS) auditorium starting at 7pm, cost R75.

At the same time the ICCS Seafront Restaurant will be hosting African Night, featuring African food and dance. Tickets for this cost R100.
