NORWAY – Visitors to Guy E. Rowe School will have an opportunity Sunday, March 29, to try on some traditional African clothing, taste some African food, carry firewood on their heads and hunt for “termites” in a “termite mound.”

Art Moves will dance to Inanna drumming and there will be speakers all afternoon, including a Malawian who will describe life in his country.

In addition, three local school groups have each made a full-sized “hut” for display.

It’s all part of the African Culture Festival benefiting projects in South Africa, Malawi, Rwanda and Burundi through three locally affiliated nonprofit organizations: Imbass, Chabha and Friends of Little Field Home.

The event will run from noon to 4 p.m. There is no admission, but donations will be accepted at the door.
