And this year International Almere is getting into the thick of it and running an Africa Quiz.
On the back of our hugely popular Friday Night Quiz (every second Friday of the month a the Apollo Hotel) we have been asked to run two quiz sessions throughout the day and we have been very busy coming up with fun, interesting and hard questions.
The quiz will cost €1 per person to enter and there will be a beautiful Oware game up for grabs for the winner of each session. We will be asking the questions in both Dutch and English. Quiz 1 will be held at 14.30 and quiz 2 at 16.30, both at the Podiumtent Centrale Tuin. There is a 25 participant limit on this one for each session, so make sure you’re on time!
Afrikadag is a hugely popular event, founded in 1999. The goal of Afrikadag-Almere is to bring people together with the art and culture of the African continent. To offer a more enriching image of Africa through theater, dance, music and literature.
In 2012 the programme is no exception. There will be fashion, Senegalese dance and percussion, jewellery making and henna painting workshops, African Batik workshops, and an interactive performance by master drummer Henri Goabi plus much, much more!
