Event Description

We want to welcome you to be an active participant in the second Kwame Nkrumah Pan African Intellectual and Cultural Festival to be held at the University of Ghana, June 25- July1 2017. This festival, under the theme of Global Africa 2063, is seeking to rekindle the ideals of African redemption in troubling times. Starting from the goals and aspirations of the African Union in Agenda 2063, this festival seeks to draw inspiration from Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah while ensuring that the conditions and freedom of the peoples of Africa within the wider international community are not left out in the call for freedom and independence of Africans. In this sense, the festival draws from the ideas of Nkrumah and Marcus Garvey who both argued of the inextricable linkages between the fortunes of Africans at home and abroad.

This festival ‘Global Africa 2063’ builds on the ‘harvest of artistic- educational events’ from the first Kwame Nkrumah Intellectual and cultural festival which was held at the University of Ghana in 2010. That Festival focused attention on the education of the youth and in the context of the growing struggles around education in Africa, this second Festival will also focus on education for transformation. This festival will involve youth from all parts of the African continent and from all parts of Global Africa. We anticipate major cultural events with dance performances, musical concerts, drama as well as film shows. The Pan African conference that will be a central part of this intellectual festival will interrogate major questions for the Global Pan African Movement as outlined in the sub themes of this festival. We welcome all who are working for a free and united Africa with the freedom and emancipation of Africans everywhere. In this welcome we re- echo the statement of Kwame Nkrumah at the opening of the OAU in 1963

“Our objective is African union now. There is no time to waste. We must unite now or perish. I am confident that by our concerted effort and determination, we shall lay here the foundations for a continental Union of African States.”

We are taking that further to cement the union of the peoples of Africa at home and abroad.
