On the road with Nomadic Expression

Nomadic Expression will drop in on the The Somali Youth Forum in East London, tomorrow, 09/11/06.  I can't wait to talk to you guys and gals and invite you to be part of the evening celebrating fatherhood! Leyla tells me you're all up to inspiring stuff- I want all the gory details.  It will be a great after-work escapade.

On Saturday 11/11/06, Nomadic Expression will drop in on the Youth Enlightenment Group in North London who are re-launching their activities.  Last week Farid, Ahmed and co were sprucing the space up for the launch. If you're a North Londoner, be there and find out what the group can make available to you.  Farid's determined to make the group a very successful one. 

If you would like Nomadic Expression to come see your group, write me at

See you on the road.

P.S: there won't be a meeting at Selby on Saturday 11/11/06.  Nomadic Expression is concentrating on introducing itself and its first project to places where the youth already congregate before inviting them elsewhere. Keep yourself in the loop by checking the site regularly and if you want to see us, write us and we'll come for you...ehem, to you, I mean. :-)
