First of its kind in the global north

One of the reasons we think Edges and Drinks is the first of its kind in Scandinavia, is because the event is curated to feed your body, mind and soul.
 

Edges and Drinks serves traditional african food, has a headlining hair show that takes you on a historical journey from how our ancestors used to take care of their curls combined with afro nordic fashion styling and at the same time portraying the amazing varieties that lay within our natural hair.

 

This gathering connects melanated women and men from around the world in the center of Oslo for the sole purpose of celebrating afrocentric riches and textured hair.

 

The Most common remarks, said in various ways, at Edges and Drinks were;
A safe space outside of home

“It's a joyful and soul fulfilling day to be in a safe space outside of my home.”

 

“ By us for us.”

 

Representation matters

“ It's eye opening to be able to count all us caucasians on two hands at a nearly sold out daytime event in my own city. The whole event was beautiful, I am just not used to being a minority.”

 

A cultural celebration

It's refreshing to be organized in a space where everybody looks like me and it doesn't involve mourning a passing, protesting against injustices nor collecting money for a charity benefit.”

     

It´s safe to say that, The very first Edges and Drinks became one for the books.
