Ananse Arts will be hosting The 1st Annual Kings Conference, an afternoon of serious discussion, debate, action and networking.
The conference was created in order to address the issues most affecting the Black community at the present time, whilst looking into ways in which every person can be involved in changing things for the better, as well as finding out ways to support the people, community organisations and current projects and initiatives running.
This conference gives Black men the chance to speak to the community on the issues most affecting our communities.
We are used to seeing the women speak up, but now we have dedicated this night to not only giving men the platform to speak and to be seen and heard, but this conference is created to support them in order to do more within the community.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS FOR THOSE AGED 16 AND OVER.
The Kings Conference will discuss 3 topics of conversation and panelists will talk about the following subjects.
1. “Rewriting the black family narrative.” Reclaiming the black family structure and the return of Love, Unity, Black Identity, Community and Stability in hostile territory.
2. The Importance of Education: Accessing the Key of Education, Entrepreneurship and Investing in the Black Child.”
3. Finding the Health within: “How to take care of Mental, Physical and Spiritual Health.” The importance of Mental health within the black community and the importance of establishing bonds and successful support networks especially for Black Men.
The Floor will then open to the audience, to ask questions, to give opinion and to speak with panellists. Audience members will have the chance to find out how to get involved with any projects and initiatives.
