Ankara FestivalOrganised by the Association of Nigerian Community in Clare (ANCC), the Ankara Festival is a unique annual cultural event promoting diversity and social inclusion among the Nigerian community in Clare.

The festival brings the local Nigerian and wider community together to celebrate, showcase and preserve Nigerian culture, cultural values and heritage.

In 2017, the ANCC successfully gained LEADER support to purchase their own sound equipment which serves to enhance the experience of attendees at this festival. This equipment is also available for use in all other ANCC activities, and wider community events.

This project was supported as part of the LEADER Programme 2014-2020 (extended to 2022) under the theme of Social Inclusion and the subtheme of Basic Services Targeted at Hard to Reach Communities. The Local Action Group is Clare Local Development Company.
