PROGRAMME 
NNE AGWU AFRAKAN STORYTELLING REATREAT 2022

Best Afrakan Storytellers and Leadership Facilitators UK wide

Nne Agwu Afrakan Storytelling Retreat 2022 is in honour of our ancestor Winnie Madikizela Mandela: Freedom warrior with a powerful spiritual energy. She has played an essential role in inspiring freedom visions with the oral traditions of her words as well as her actions. During this retreat we will be creating freedom tales, enacting freedom rituals, singing freedom songs to let Winnie know her efforts are appreci-loved by the global melanin rich and we keep the fire that she started burning in her name and in the name of freedom.

We are thankful to Chineke the divine womb of creation as we affirm the natural forces & divine energies of the universe continue to guide us gracefully. Come make this a truly beautiful & wonderful occasion.
