Sherehe is Swahili for party or festival.
The purpose of this multicultural party is to bring people together and push diversity to the forefront. With this get together, Teakisi aims to celebrate cultural diversity with the hope of creating awareness amongst the various communities of Newcastle and increase the pivotal need of appreciating and respecting the multicultural values & heritages of different communities.
This event is free to all adults (18 years and above) but will be ticketed. This means, everyone must register and have a ticket, so please make sure you grab yours before they run out!
Our hosts at Dance City will provide your first burger, chips and drink free (including beer), as we encourage you to mingle and learn about each other’s cultures and traditions. There will be plenty of refreshments on offer at the bar, including vegan and non-alcoholic options.
The inspirational Georgia May – a soulful vocalist, born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne with Nigerian roots will also provide the live music. Her sound is defined by soothing timbres exposing contrasting emotions of lust and heartache with a poetic lyrical narrative. She’s heavily influenced by 90’s hip hop, RnB and acoustic soul. Georgia’s captivating live vocals are complimented by Daps on keyboards and production, bringing jazzy chords with a gospel influence.
Come 21st March 2022, mask wearing will no longer be required in most public spaces in England; however we recommend that people still wear face coverings in enclosed or private spaces where they are mixing with people they don’t know. Where possible, we strongly advise to also take a covid test before attending the event.
Teakisi thanks Newcastle City Council Community Fund for making it possible for us to put this event together. The overall idea is to support activities and interventions to reduce the impact of coronavirus on certain communities within Newcastle.
