ASCA attended the 2019 AMCF for the first time. This vibrant event showcases music, dancing, diverse arts, cultural performances, and authentic African food that transports visitors to Africa. This free one-day event is a fun, family friendly affair with non-stop entertainment ranging from cultural performances, catwalk fashion shows, artists in traditional costumes and iconic drumming – all creating a memorable and unique experience that promotes cross-cultural awareness and understanding of African culture in Australia as described by AMCF.
We are happy to attest that this was what we experienced. Our day went so fast spending over 15 hours of our day there. At this event, we were able to engage with people in the community who are at risk of having the sickle cell trait. A huge opportunity for us as we connected with so many people who identified with our cause. Looking forward to attending future events.
