Tahriib a National Disaster - oTahriib Waa Aafo Qaran (Tahriib a National Disaster)
4th June – Hargeysa Cultural Centre

Today we are witnessing an unprecedented exodus of people from mainly war-torn countries and conflict zones in Africa and the Middle East to supposedly safe and prosperous environs in Europe and North America. The sheer numbers of people who are willing to risk their lives by placing themselves in the hands of ruthless human traffickers, and travelling through war-torn countries and cross the Mediterranean on flimsy boats and rafts, is very disturbing.

The Mystery of the Land of Punt Unraveled

Date: November, Wednesday 26
“The Mystery of the Land of Punt Unraveled”, written by Axmed Ibrahim Awale, contains possible evidences and persuasive arguments to cause a stir among historians (Egyptologists in particular). It uncovers and exposes archeological findings in an area that has never been thought to have historical significance.

The Hargeysa Cultural Center was opened in August 2014 in Hargeysa, Somaliland. The Center was established by Redsea Cultural Foundation (RCF). Since its establishment, the Hargeysa Cultural Center has become an important feature in Hargeysa’s cultural landscape. The success of the center owes much to the respect that RCF has gained from its work on running the annual Hargeysa International Book Fair, which, now in its eighth year, has become one of the most admired cultural events in the region.
