The entire TellAfrica crew wishes to, on behalf of HIM Ooni Adeyeye Babatunde Ogunwusi thank and appreciate all that had been involved in ensuring a successful maiden edition of TellAfrica Art & Craft Festival (TIAF) 2018; most especially our partners, sponsors, intending exhibitors and all others too numerous to mention.
It is often generally said that, “nothing stops an idea whose time has come” and it is in this spirit that the organizers of this maiden edition has concurred to superior reasoning of ‘the more the merrier’. Due to the ear friendly development of the interest further expressed from well meaning quarters to partake in the historic event.
It is on this note that the House of Oduduwa and team TellAfrica has decided to postpone the event earlier scheduled for December 14, 16 & 17 to a latter date during the Black History Month in the Americas as well as close to the notable Odunde Festival in order to encourage the inclusion of all other Africans who have shown interest to make representation at the TIAF event.
Preparation is still ongoing while we have been fixed to accommodate fresh interests in this respect for an all inclusive event and improved delivery.
All venue remain as previously arranged:
DAY 1 : Convention Centre, Baltimore Downtown.
Day 2: Palladium Centre, Baltimore.
Day 3: Tropical Grill, Jamaica NY.
We are grateful to our partners and sponsors; Ethiopian Airline, T-Mobile, the more than 30 African missions and government parastatals as well as Kings, Governors and Presidents of nations who have shown interest to participate among others for bearing with us on these terms.
