Portugal: Association bets on spreading Angolan culture

Lisbon – The spreading of Angolan culture, the union of the resident community in Portugal and the exchange of experience with other cultures have been the biggest “flag” of the House of Angola in Lisbon, said Thursday its president Zeferino Boal.

Speaking to ANGOP about the 47th anniversary of the association’s existence on June 25, Zeferino Boal said that the House of Angola seeks to convey, in this period of peace, a fraternal message of humanism.

According to the official, the dissemination of Angolan culture involves the holding of exhibitions, presentations of books by Angolans and arts from other African countries.

“The House of Angola is the association of Angolans, the oldest in Portugal and should be a focal point of the Angolan community. However, they can be associated and share all the friends and natives of Angola and here we reinforce our inclusive role of people, “he said.

The House of Angola Association in Lisbon was established on June 25, 1971, by a group of young people born in Angola and living and studying in Portugal.
