The group sets out to find areas of common ground that exists between all cultures within the group and within the ever growing UAE. Also to celebrate and share with others aspects of those cultures that we believe will build better understanding and appreciation amongst us and others.
For almost four years BCC has organized activities and experiences that have enabled black and other expats new to this country the opportunity to meetup and form lasting friendships.
BCC has evolved from an exchange of member experiences and developed into an appreciation of the diverse cultures within the black communities and in the UAE. Our aim therefore is to continue to learn and celebrate our cultures and that of the local and expat communities. 'Be Proud! Be You!' is our motto.
It is our hope that the new direction of this group will serve as a tool and resource to help its members network, connect, share and support each other as they learn more about themselves and the communities around them. To achieve this, we have developed a series of mini clubs with a particular theme so you can easily find what may interest you. Eg, Culture Connectors, Social Connectors, Film and Book Connectors, Foodie Connectors, New 2 Abu Dhabi Connectors, Networking Connectors, Travel Connectors, Adventure Connectors, etc. Each one will have a leader who will post regular events and be the person you can contact for information specific to that club.
Based on the development of the group, we feel a more encompassing name is fitting at this time:
BUILDING CULTURAL CONNECTIONS (BCC)
If you would like to join our planning team, please contact us and we will let you know the process for this.
We look forward to welcoming you in person to the group very soon.
