THE GARVEY VILLAGE
‘Let Us Prepare Today for Our Tomorrow’
Family Fun Fundraiser
Saturday 6th July 2019 – 12noon – 11pm
The Garvey Village Enterprise provides economical and sustainable
empowerment in education and training, employment, health, and social and
cultural community cohesion for the African and Caribbean peoples it serves.
Following the successful fundraising activities of the last 2 years, Garvey Village is holding a Family Fun Fundraiser on 6th July at the St Laurence Centre, 37 Bromley Rd, Catford, SE6 2TS. Together with the previous funds raised, this fundraising (for £5,000 – total raised so far £7,000) is enabling Garvey Village to pay for the first 3 months rental payment on units 6 and 7 at Eros House in Rushy Green, also in Catford, and begin to offer its services to the local community as well as London wide. Author Khadijah Ward (Black Sterling, and Dark Girl Boss) is an investor in the project and will present aspects of the African Diaspora’s zooming’ economy in the UK.
There is a swell of support from the community to celebrate our rich history and future aspirations in this event. Children’s entertainment on the day include fun tricks, magic, and balloon modelling with magician Danite, story-telling with Sola-Story, STEM activities with Rijolie Birtata, film screening, games, gifts from the Piňata, and more.
Adults will enjoy music and spoken word artists appearing throughout the day – including Barry Dread, Tashey Makeda, Joy Mac, Empress Orical I, Andrew Muhammad, Afrikan Muhammad, Tehuti Khep-Re-Ra-Ru, Joseph, Barbara Gray (Newly Elected Mayoress of Lewisham), Tony Cealy, and Wadada, Dr Abu Ratata, Fada Cass, Queen Nzingha Assata, Billy, among others to be revealed.
The Garvey Village has developed from Auntie Jean’s Afrikan Culture Market (ACM) – one of London’s most successful monthly community cultural events. The Garvey Village will be the go-to-hub for resolutions for community issues, space for access to culturally specific workshops, seminars, training, job clubs, a cultural library and archive, exhibitions, complementary health therapies, and healthy eating options with its own Vegan Cafe.
The Garvey Village revolutionary Marcus Garvey ‘Black Print’ of Nation Building, Economic Unity, Self-Reliance and Collective Black wealth, as a way life for our generation and the next.
