She begins to understand the pain of the young girl – the pain caused by the reckless actions of multinational corporations and its impact on the lives of a fishing village. This is a film dedicated to “all the victims of humanity’s lack of conscience”. \nFate is a British Somali short film that explores the state of love\, dreams and reality through the eyes of Samira.

Three extraordinary women give an account of their experiences\, fears and hopes inside the only maternity hospital in Dadaab\, the world’s largest refugee camp. Women and children are an important foundation to healthy communities\, however\, they continue to die every day from preventable causes. \n\n\n\n\n\n URL:https://theatm.org/event/somali-week-festival-three-short-film-screenings-and-discussion/ LOCATION:Oxford House in Bethnal Green\, Derbyshire Street\, London\, E2 6HG\, United Kingdom ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://theatm.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Somaliweek.jpeg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20191023T173000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20191023T210000 DTSTAMP:20200220T070333 CREATED:20191023T114230Z LAST-MODIFIED:20191023T114723Z UID:26174-1571851800-1571864400@theatm.org SUMMARY:Somali Week Festival: Panel- Somali Youth &Culture & Somali Women Today DESCRIPTION:\n\n\n\nDiaspora Youth and their Contribution to Somali Culture & Somali Women Today: Public\, Private and Political Spaces\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAbout this Event\n\n\nThis evening will begin with a discussion on the Somali diaspora’s contribution and revival of Somali arts and culture. \nChaired by SOAS scholar Dr Yusuf Sheikh Omar\, the panel will include celebrated architect Omar Degan and esteemed Textile Designer Hafza Yusuf (Hafza Studio). \nOmar Degan is a Somali-Italian Architect\, founder\, and principal of DO Architecture and Design\, an architecture firm based in Mogadishu\, specialized in sustainability\, emergency architecture and post-conflict reconstruction. \nThe second part of the evening will feature a discussion focused on what it means to be a Somali woman in globally challenging times\, and how Somali women navigate the political\, social and cultural notions of womanhood today.

However\, its the small minority that bring negativity and unwarranted attention. The causal effects of this dillema is complex and requires cross sector urgent partnership/actions at grass-root level. \n \nWithin this framework members of the Somali community in London have organised an evening of information sharing and an attempt to find durable solutions to these issues that effect US all in London. The Somali community in London is most effected by knife crime and youth violence as statistics show at least 8 young British/Somali origins had their life cut short by youth violence/ knife crime. \n \nThis particular evening discussions are not about blaming people or institutions about the issue – but rather an opportunity to share what actions we can all take to support and learn from each other in dealing with these complex multi-facet issues on youth violence. \n URL:https://theatm.org/event/knife-crime-and-gang-membership-community-conference/ LOCATION:Ealing Council Chamber\, 14 Uxbridge Road \, london \, w5 2hl\, United Kingdom END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20190524T183000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20190524T220000 DTSTAMP:20200220T070333 CREATED:20190522T125807Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190522T163324Z UID:25972-1558722600-1558735200@theatm.org SUMMARY:ELAYS - Ramadan Iftar DESCRIPTION:In celebrating the holy month of Ramadan\, We are pleased to invite you to join us for Elays Iftar event that will be held on: \nFriday 24th May 2019 at Elays Centre\, 68 St Rules Street\, London\, SW8 3ED\, \nArrival at 6:30 pm program to start at 7:30 pm. \nWe do hope that you accept our invitation and honour us with your presence. \nDress code is within the spirit of the month. \nPlease follow the link below to reserve your ticket. \nhttps://www.elaysnetwork.com/ramadan-iftar/kn2pyoenanjefjv196glfvoggn3xcs \n\n URL:https://theatm.org/event/elays-ramadan-iftar/ LOCATION:Elays Corner St. Rule Street\, London\, SW8 3ED\, United Kingdom ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://theatm.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/elays.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="Elays%20Youth%20Network":MAILTO:info@elaysnertwork.com END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20190215T130000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20190215T210000 DTSTAMP:20200220T070333 CREATED:20190128T103542Z LAST-MODIFIED:20190128T110146Z UID:25792-1550235600-1550264400@theatm.org SUMMARY:SOAS Somali Diaspora Conference: Challenges & Opportunities in UK DESCRIPTION:The Somali Diaspora is one of the largest black and ethnic minority communities in the UK.

Europol\, the EU’s police intelligence unit\, estimates that around 10\,000 unaccompanied children have gone missing in Europe over the past two years. It is feared that some have fallen into the hands of drug gangs\, human traffickers\, or were sold into the sex industry. Others may have travelled to family or friends in Europe without reporting it. They have all but disappeared. \nDrawing on the Hyundai Commission: Tania Bruguera – 10\,145\,866\, a community-driven response to the global migration crisis\, Lost in Europe will host a bootcamp at Tate Exchange. Open to all\, we invite you to unpick the data available on Europe’s missing migrant children. This will take the form of an hour-long interactive data bootcamp followed by a panel discussion to explore the broader themes. The panel discussion will share perspectives from the Lost in Europe team alongside Debbie Beadle\, Director of Programmes at Every Child Protected Against Trafficking UK. \n3pm – Data bootcamp \n4.30pm – Panel discussion \nAbout Lost in Europe\nThe goal of Lost in Europe is to recover the stories of these missing children. It comprises a team of investigative journalists from the Netherlands\, Belgium\, Italy and the UK\, who are collaborating to find out what has happened to disappeared children in Europe. \nSupported by news organisations\, such as VPRO\, De Standaard\, BBC Radio 4 News\, and Il Fatto Quotidiano this investigative journalism project will shine a light on wrongdoing and tell the stories of disappeared child refugees in the EU. This cross-border project is backed up by the Investigative Journalism for the EU Fund. Over the past months\, Lost in Europe have requested data on missing child refugees from all EU countries. In October\, the group organised a data bootcamp in Amsterdam (together with Lighthouse Reports and several experts) to see what can be learnt when all the data is brought together. \nLost in Europe is comprised of investigative journlists Sanne Terlingen\, Ismail Einashe\, Cecilia Ferrara\, Lost in Europe Editor in Chief Geesje van Haren\, and Debbie Beadle\, Director of Programmes at Every Child Protected Against Trafficking UK. \nPlease join them and bring people along.

The festival\, an integral part of the United Kingdom Black History Month\, will run from 19th October to 28th October 2018 across London in Oxford House in Bethnal Green\, City Hall\, Southbank Centre\, British Library\, Rich Mix\, The Broadway Theatre in Barking and Chelsea and Kensington Town Hall and The British Museum. This year is a special milestone as the Festival reaches its 10th consecutive year of bringing together one of the largest gatherings of Somalis in the Diaspora during its annual 10-day festival. The theme for this year is the aptly named: “Decade: Looking Forward\, Looking Back” as Kayd’s Somali Week Festival reflects back on ten years of celebrating the very best in Somali arts\, culture\, research and heritage. In doing so\, this year we bring together old friends with new by inviting some of the most popular artists that we have showcased in the past whilst also doing an in memoriam of the visiting artists connected to Somali Week Festival that have since passed away. By looking back at the great artists and researchers who have attended Somali Week Festival\, we hope to not only celebrate the important discussions and music that came out of the festival but also by creating a dialogue of how this can relate to the future generation in looking forward. \nWe are delighted to welcome a number of highly esteemed international guests\, including scholars\, activists\, poets\, writers\, playwrights\, musicians and other artists from the Somali region\, the UK\, the US and Canada as well as several European countries in a festival that celebrates our common Somali heritage and all that we have in common as well as our individuality and uniqueness as people. We are delighted to welcome a number of highly esteemed international guests\, including scholars\, activists\, poets\, writers\, playwrights\, musicians and other artists from the Somali region\, the UK\, the US and Canada as well as several European countries in a festival that celebrates our common Somali heritage and all that we have in common as well as our individuality and uniqueness as people. Our esteemed visiting guests are: poets Weedhsame and Dheeg\, music composer Bashir Xadi\, popular singer Ahmed Ali Cigaal\, Hibo-Nura Mohamed and Cherrie\, Journalists Harun Maruf and Mohammed Adow\, playwright Said Salah\, researchers and writers MaxamedXirsi and Bodhari Warsame and human rights activist Boqor Ahmed Warsame (King of Gabooye) and Dr. Jama Musse Jama. They will be joined by UK artists and scholars: Dr. Martin Orwin\, Dr. Yusuf Sheikh Omar\, Professor Bill Herbert\, Hodan Musa\, QumanAkli\, musicians Aar Maanta and Kiin Jaamac\, photographer Mina Shoots\, children’s programme creator Zaynab Dahir and poets Fatima Diriye\, Sagal Gabay\, Suhaama Elmi (Susu Creates)\, Mohamed Haykal\, Asha LulMuhamud\, Clare Pollard\, Bill Herbert\, Will Harris\, Yasmin Osman\, Aisha Nuri and Deqa Abdi. \nThe importance of arts and culture is that it brings people together and allows them to discuss sensitive issues in a safe environment and the aim of Somali Week Festival is to be an inclusive space where Somalis in the Horn\, as well as the Diaspora\, feel represented and important. The 10th anniversary will allow us to not only celebrate\, but also discuss the changes in the Somali region both culturally and socio-politically\, and to acknowledge the rich diversity within the Somali community. In doing so\, it is also important for Somali Week Festival to create a platform for difficult issues to be addressed in an inclusive space\, such as the discussion with Boqor Ahmad Warsame (King of Gabooye)\, who will be speaking about the issues facing minorities within the Somali region. It is also important when looking forward\, to think about ways in which our history and heritage inform us in how we shape our identity\, both in the homeland and in the diaspora. Somali Week Festival is one of the first of its kind to represent Somalis across the Horn without any political affiliation and it is a space for all Somalis to feel welcomed and represented. \nThis year we are producing a brand-new contemporary play based on the historical folklore figure of Arawelo which will emerge heritage with artistic fiction. We will also explore what heritage looks like in 2018 in our collaboration with Project NOMAD that allows viewers to experience a 3D experience of old artefacts. As always\, the role of poetry in Somali society cannot be underestimated as we gather the iconic poets Dheeg and Weedhsame from the Horn alongside British-Somali Poets Asha LulMohamud Yusuf and Mohamed Haykal to mention a few\, in a ten-day festival that will look back over Kayd’s last decade to capture the essence\, of reflection and why it is so important to look back at the changes that have taken place over these past 10 years. \nWe are also excited to celebrate the new talents emerging from both the Horn and in the Diaspora\, such as our Share Your Talent platform in collaboration with the London Literature Festival in the Southbank Centre which focuses on Women in Arts this year where we give a platform to upcoming Somali poets. The ever-popular final night concert\, Final Beats at Kensington and Chelsea Town Hall features the best in Somali music from The Horn\, UK and Sweden and is sure to be a night of live music and dancing and space for everyone to enjoy themselves in a festive closing event. \nThe South Bank event is not included in our week- pass. \n URL:https://theatm.org/event/somali-week-festival-week-pass/ LOCATION:Oxford House\, Derbyshire Street\,\, Bethnal Green\, E2 6HG\, United Kingdom ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://theatm.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Somali-week.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20180922T100000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20180922T170000 DTSTAMP:20200220T070333 CREATED:20180919T140616Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180919T140652Z UID:25546-1537610400-1537635600@theatm.org SUMMARY:Inter-University Somali Society UCAS Day DESCRIPTION:In a grand support of incoming higher education students\, Somali Societies across the city have worked tirelessly to present a highly supportive and inspirational UCAS Day event targeted at prospective Somali and BME students.\nThe day will see students having the opportunity to listen to eminent and highly aspirational Somali public figures\, ranging from Buzzfeed’s Ikran Dahir\, youth worker and outreach professional\, Dr Mahamed Hashi\, and Cardiology Specialist Zakariye Ashkir.\nThe day will consist of many highly practical sessions such as:\n\n\none-to-one personal statement reviews\n\n\nefficient revision workshops\n\n\nfuture mentoring opportunities\n\n\nnetworking with university students in the academic discipline\n\n\nand much MUCH more!\n\n\n\nGrab your FREE ticket and join us on the 22nd of September!\n URL:https://theatm.org/event/inter-university-somali-society-ucas-day/ LOCATION:20 Bedford Way London\, Bloomsbury\, WC1H 0AL\, United Kingdom ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://theatm.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/UCASday.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="Kingston%20Somali%20Society%20":MAILTO:somalisociety.ku@gmail.com END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/London:20180920T180000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/London:20180920T210000 DTSTAMP:20200220T070333 CREATED:20180919T134655Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180919T134921Z UID:25530-1537466400-1537477200@theatm.org SUMMARY:Hearing from the Somali Diaspora DESCRIPTION:Concerns regarding Somali\, the current threat from al-Shabaab\, the foreign policy of Britain and western countries towards the nation\, and how this affects its people are often raised by local members of the Somali community.
