The Cambridge University African Caribbean Society (CUACS) is a thriving community open to all of African and Caribbean descent and more generally, those interested in learning about African and Caribbean culture. We pride ourselves on our commitment to educate, empower and entertain our members. These are the three pillars that underpin all that we do as a society.
From formal dinners to talks to creative showcases, such as our annual show Culture Fest, we offer members the chance to come together in a variety of settings. CUACS is a platform that allows members to encourage, motivate and support one another to become the future leaders of society.
Over the academic year 2016/2017 we held a string of incredibly successful events including:
- Our Annual Nando’s “Meet and Eat”
- Freshers’ Fun Day
- Black History Month Celebration
- ‘Young, Gifted, and Black’ Panel Session
- ACS Affair
- Access Conference (August 2017)
We are keen to facilitate more events that allow new and existing members to get to know each other in informal settings and strengthen the community.
By hosting more talks with leading figures from the African-Caribbean disapora and supporting more African-Caribbean businesses, we hope to hone in more on our culture.
Finally, as a society open to all with an interest in African and Caribbean culture, we look forward to collaborating with other societies and organisations with a view to broadening our reach.
