DETAILS OF THE NOMINEE
The International Afrika Festival Tübingen is a platform that proudly celebrates African cultures.
Launched in 2007, the International Afrika Festival Tübingen is a cultural festival with a strong business bias.
Dr Susan Tatah, the founder of the Festival, has always been keen to ensure the festival markets African countries as tourist and investment destinations.
The appealing African cultural activities are used to attract people to the Festival in order to enable them to learn about Africa, Africans, their traditions, and above all, let them discover investment opportunities in African countries.
Convinced that foreigners can’t effectively do business in Africa without proper knowledge of the continent and its cultures, Dr Tatah always makes sure the Afrika Festival Tübingen provides Germans a good platform to learn about African countries and their cultures.
The Festival is also a platform for Africans in Germany to gain more knowledge about their traditional and modern cultures and become proud of them.
The Festival has created networking opportunities for African and German businesspeople. It has made Germans appreciate African music to an extent that many German FM radio stations now continuously play African music.
The Afrika Festival Tübingen is indeed a perfect platform for integration of immigrants.
It creates a unique opportunity for Germans and Africans from all parts of Germany to come together and get immersed in African cultural activities.
At the Festival participants always have a chance of tasting and enjoying a variety of African dishes.
It brings together more than 10.000 visitors each year to the beautiful university Town of Tübingen.
The Afrika Festival Tübingen is supported by Mini Cultural Grants of Tübingen City Cultural Grants, and it has been attended by top German and African authorities, African Ambassadors in Germany and prominent African personalities.
Winners of the AFRONEWS – Ortel Mobile African Community in Germany Awards (2021) will be announced at the Awards Gala Night sponsored by Ortel Mobile on 23rd October 2021 from 18:00 to 23:00 at Freigut Bootshaus GmbH, Freigut-Frankfurt, Eiserner Steg (Sachsenhäuser Mainufer), 60594 Frankfurt am Main.
