Somali culture celebrated in Haringey
An event was held in Wood Green on Friday 19 August, bringing the community together to celebrate and learn about Somali culture.
Organised by RISE Projects with support from Haringey Council, the event featured music, dance and poetry performed by contemporary Somali artists, as well as a display of traditional Somali cultural artefacts. Attendees were also treated to some traditional Somali cuisine.
At the opening of the event, Deputy Mayor of Haringey, Cllr Lester Buxton, accepted an award from RISE Projects on behalf of Leader of the Council, Cllr Peray Ahmet, who was commended for her steadfast support for Haringey's Somali community.
The event was the first in what it is hoped will become an annual celebration of Somali life in Haringey.
