About this Event
Sandblast Info Day
Join us for an informative and inspiring gathering to get updated on the situation in Western Sahara and learn more about Sandblast’s work with the Saharawi refugees. You will have the opportunity to meet members of the Saharawi diaspora in London and find out more about participating in the 2024 Sahara Marathon in support of Sandblast's early-learning Desert Voicebox project in the Saharawi refugee camps in the Algerian Sahara.
Throughout the afternoon, there will be a series of short presentations and film screenings and first-hand accounts from Saharawis in the UK and from former participants of the Sahara Marathon. For those who are ready to take the leap, there will be the opportunity to sign up on the day to do the 2024 Sahara Marathon.
The event will end with a delicious north African meal and the pleasure of hearing Rama and Mario play their music, two musicians who work towards building peace and better lives through music. Not to be missed!
Whether you're a keen runner who wants more information about the desert charity race, or are from an organisation interested in developing support links, or you just wish to learn more about the Western Sahara and what Sandblast does, this event is for you.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to hear inspiring stories, meet like-minded people, and discover how you can get involved to make a difference.
