Our kick off event this semester is an open mic night celebrating Mama Africa on Thursday, January 20th. This is in collaboration event with Africa Awareness Initiative's Conference Week 2011. Whether you are a poet, musician, singer or dancer, you are invited to share your talent with us. If you want to see some excellent artistic presentations, there will be several feature performers including slam poets, singers and instrumentalists who all share a love of Africa and her diaspora. This event is free and takes place at Koerner's Pub (don't forget to bring 2 pieces of ID). Doors open at 6:30 and event starts at 7 pm sharp!
Happy 2011! Welcome to a new semester with CAA. It's a new year and the Executives have been working hard to bring you exciting and engaging events in the upcoming months.
Our first event of the year will be a collaboration with Africa Awareness Initiative during the Conference week.
In February, our first member's meeting and movie night. will be on February 9th with a club night at Shine to follow! We will also be hosting five exciting events to celebrate Black History month and in particular black history in Vancouver, including an event about Hogan's Alley and an international speaker (it's a surprise).
There is also our Caribbean Connection Week in the last week of March. We are having an event each day including a restaurant night at the Reef, a salsa dancing night, and of course Carnival, our year end celebration which is the hottest party on campus.
There will also be elections in April, so if you are interested in becoming an Exec for the 2011/2012 year, make sure you get involved with us.
If you are interested in getting involved with the CAA, don't hesitate to stop by our office located in the SUB 111C during our weekly Monday meetings at 2pm or come out to the many events we are planning this semester!
