Strike a Light partnered with AfriKàBa, the Hastings based festival of African and Caribbean heritage, arts and culture, alongside Hastings Borough Council, and the Electric Palace Cinema.

AfriKàBa is an annual festival that showcases high quality work from artists with African and Caribbean heritage and engages audiences with unique and enriching experiences.

We had funding to provide free activities that positively promote African Caribbean culture, crafts and food including:

  • African Caribbean family activities for the public, all ages and backgrounds.
  • Drumming and singing workshops
  • Storytelling for families
  • Demonstration and tasting of East African  cooking at the flagship facility Classroom on the Coast.

We received funding from the Chalk Cliff Trust to deliver these activities and for this many thanks!
