The annual Igbo Conference in partnership with the Centre for African studies, SOAS, University of London is a not-for-profit company with the aim to encourage and promote Igbo Studies in the UK and provide a forum for intellectual and cultural exchange between scholars, students and members of the community who wish to discovering the Igbo culture, language and heritage.
The Igbo conference is two day themed event held every year around March or April comprising of plenary panels, Igbo cultural performances and workshops.
As there are limited Igbo Language and Cultural studies available in British Universities, the ultimate goal of the annual Igbo Language Conference is to eventually establish an Igbo Centre in London which will act as a hub for anyone interested in research in the field of Igbo Studies (through a library, archives and study space), as well as providing a resource for members of the public to learn more about Igbo culture (through artefacts and interactive resources).
Check out their Legacies of Biafra Art Exhibition & online Igbo history at The Igbo Archive.
