Southbank Centre, London
Thursday 11th – Sunday 14th September 2014
Following 2012’s sensational first edition, Africa Utopia is back for 2014 to once again look at what can be learnt and celebrated from Africa and the African diaspora.
We look at how African art and ideas can change the world for the better: how Africa can lead the way in thinking about culture, community, technology, fashion, sustainability and ethical wealth creation.
Some of the continent’s most iconic musicians and artists appear at the festival but also take part in the debates alongside experts, entrepreneurs and activists. Join us to celebrate arts and culture one of the world’s most dynamic and fast-changing continents.
There are a series of panels and events taking place on the Saturday which are themed around arts and culture, politics and social change. AiW would like to draw special attention to the Kwani? Zine-Making Workshop at 11.30am, and also to the panel on Music, Art and Social Change at 1pm, which features Billy Kahora as one of the speakers. Please follow this link for further details!
Sunday includes events on urban spaces, architecture, politics and art, with Africa 39 Live taking place at 1.30pm. For more information on Sunday’s events, please see here.
