Discovering & Celebrating Black Cultures while challenging racism and promoting local artists and businesses.
The Afro World Festival is a project of the Equal Chance Foundation which aims to bring together the Canadian society to discover, share and celebrate Black and Black African cultures in Canada through Music, Arts, Fashion and Food while challenging stereotypes around Black people and people of African descent.
The Festival will also allow International and National guests to discover the Nation's Capital, Ottawa.
This initiative is part of Equal Chance's efforts to break the stereotypes, fight racism, discrimination and promote unity, love and respect among all members of our society.
The three-day event, which is an extension of our previous project, SAFARA will showcase International artists and performers as well as local and national Black and Black African artists.
