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 2018/2019 we held a string of incredibly successful events including:
- 70th Anniversary – Black Women of Cambridge
- Access Conference (August 2018)
- Our Annual “Meet and Eat”
- Motherland Conference
- Black History Month Celebration
- Termly LGBTQ+ Brunchs
- Termly ACS Chills
- Freshers’ Fun Day
- ACS Affair
- Black Women’s Space
- ACS Finance Conference (joint with Imperial, UCL, LSE & Kings)
- Windrush 70 years Panel
- Bowling and Karaoke Night
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.
