Banish the winter blues and join artists, musicians, poets and the DAN community for a riot of colour and sound at this evening celebration event in the RWA galleries!

Delicious Eritrean food will be available to buy from 'Food Without Borders'. Make sure to bring cash if you plan on eating with us.
