Announcing 2018 Fred Yiran African Arts Day (FYAAD)

In collaboration with the Fred Yiran Legacy Project, BFU-USA would like to announce the 2nd annual Fred Yiran African Arts Day (FYAAD) event planned for June 24th 2018 in partnership with the Granite City Day’s Family Fun day in St Cloud, Minnesota.

Launched last year as part of the Granite City Day celebrations, the Fred Yiran African Arts Day was created in honor of late Nfoomi Fred Yiran to celebrate the rich artistic culture and heritage of the thousands of African immigrants who now call Central Minnesota home.

 
Fred Yiran African Arts Day 2018

 
Thanks to the legendary works of Fred Yiran, the FYAAD is designed to expose and engage the greater number of Central Minnesota residents to the multidisciplinary field of African arts and culture. By creating this annual event, the St Cloud community has not only honored Fred Yiran but has also honored BFU-USA and other African immigrant groups in Central Minnesota. This annual event provides a wonderful opportunity and a far-reaching platform for BFU-USA and others to promote and cement their roots in their new home by sharing their rich and diverse African culture and arts – a lifelong mission of Fred Yiran.

Planning for FYAAD 2018 starts this month. The BFU-USA Cultural committee in collaboration with the BFU-USA Minnesota chapter will be working very closely with the Fred Yiran Legacy Project team in planning and executing a day befitting of the honor that it deserves.
 
Details will be shared with you as planning progresses. Updates can also be found at
