Description

We the Gambian Diaspora community will be organizing The First Diaspora Festival In The Gambia Dec/Jan, 2017 plus a Symposium announcement on economic development participation, tourism, political engagement and role of Diaspora in nation building.

We would be working with the Barrow administration to make the first Diaspora Festival in The Gambia a major success, adding that a master plan that would prescribe strategies and programmes to boost the potentials of the current state of affairs would also be addressed.

The festival would be a 3 day event - starting from Friday to Sunday with a pool party, grand music ball and Gala Dinner at the most exquisite Gambian Hotel headlined by either Yousou Ndour, sidiki diabate and Wally Seck or Godwin" singer Nigerian songwriter and singer Korede Bello alongside his Mavin Records label artists and a display of Gambian based local talent to be featured throughout the festival events.

Followed by sports: Diaspora vs local based activists and then closing with a symposium on how the diaspora could engage in national development and political participation and decision making process of the economic affairs.

Our aim and objective is to attempt to strengthen the engagement of the overseas Gambian community with the Government, reconnect them with their roots and celebrate their achievements and contributions in getting rid of dictatorship in The Gambia, thus the rebirth of the new Gambia concept.

In order to bridge our current regional divide we're particularly interested in bridging distances, unlocking Opportunities and reconnecting diaspora exiles with their families, roots and celebrate their achievements and contributions in restoring democracy and rule of law as seen in recent times in The Gambia.

The Symposium session in The Diaspora 2017 Festival would discuss the recommendations and focus on role of diaspora in nation building, at the same token addressing Diaspora issues, policy initiatives, creating awareness about government initiatives.
