Celebrating Calgary’s East African Communities

Do you live in Calgary and have roots in East Africa? We want to hear from you.

CBC Calgary is working with East African community members on a new community-driven news project. That means the ideas come from you, and we work together to tell these stories. Check out cbc.ca/eastafrican for details and to get involved.

Join us for our kick-off community celebration on Saturday Nov. 4, 2023 at the Genesis Centre (7555 Falconridge Blvd. NE) between 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Come and celebrate — taste food and appreciate fashion from other East African countries. There will be a bouncy castle and childcare for the kids. All members of local East African communities welcome!

Meet CBC personalities and join a conversation circle to hear from others in your community. Find resources and encourage the young adults who will be working hard to share your stories with the world.

Thank-you to the Calgary Foundation and the Genesis Centre for graciously sponsoring this event, to Umoja Community Mosaic for collaborating with CBC Calgary to put this on, and to everyone who helped to plan and spread the word.
