The latest exhibition organised by Bangor Arts Initiative (BAI) is attracting a lot of interest and was officially launched by BAI and guests from the African Caribbean Society from Bangor University and Learning Links International.

Cameroon Artist, Jean Samuel L’Mfikela, will be making a presentation about the Talent Outreach Association from Cameroon, at the Bangor Arts Initiative Oriel Gallery in the Deiniol Centre on Sunday 19th November at 2pm where his work, along with the work of 10 other Cameroon artistes is on show until 7th December.

Jean Samuel L’Mfikela is also linking with other locally based people with African Heritage to tell stories from Africa, exploring history and current issues, as part of the Black History 365 Programme. The Cameroon, like it’s neighbour Nigeria, was a former British colony, independent since 1961. It is often referred to as “Africa in Miniature” as all African cultural and geographical features are found in the country and many are seen in the art work on display.

Additionally Jean Samuel L’Mfikela will be leading a series of creative workshops planned on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 11am to 1pm, and 2pm to 4pm to enable interested people to explore using the themes and styles used to create the vibrant Africa art seen in the exhibition. There is a £5 fee, with concessions, phone 01248 351358 to book.
