Afrolijk, meaning ‘Afrojoy’, is a joyful night out for the African and Afro-minded community in the Netherlands with film, music, food and art from Africa and the Afro world. Africa stands of course for Africa, but also for diversity, creativity and solidarity, and that all urban and funky, and both upbeat and laid-back. Afrolijk is a collaboration between Caribbean Creativity, Dudes in your Face and Afrolosjes.
