Madaraja/Pont/Bridges

This project brings together Welsh creatives of all ethnicities (with emphasis on Black voices in Wales) and those in the African continent to explore how bridges and cultural links can be built to foster mutual relationships between Wales/Cymru and the African continent. We want to tap into the potential of diasporic communities in Wales and creatives from other communities to build bridges and promote the self-representation of people of African descent in the sector, changing narratives about the continent and about who we are.

Jamii Project

Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel (SSAP) is working in partnership with the North Wales African Society (NWAS) to deliver the ‘Jamii Project’ in Cardiff (South Wales) and Bangor (North Wales). The aim of the project is to address root causes of the harsh effect of the pandemic on the African community by addressing issues which have grassroot solutions. “Jamii” means “community” in Africa’s most spoken language- Swahili. The project seeks to foster community spirit and community interdependence to help (the community) cope with and mitigate the effects of the pandemic on the community primarily from a health and well-being vantage point.
