The African Leadership Centre invites you to save the date for the upcoming Africa Week, 3-9 March 2022.
Africa Week is an annual celebration of research, education, and outreach activities on Africa.
Hosted by the African Leadership Centre and Africa research group, Africa Week brings together academics, researchers and students from across King's. It offers the opportunity to hear from African scholars, leaders, and thinkers, as well as the chance to highlight King's collaboration with African universities and partners.
This year’s theme is "Centring the arts and cultural production: Implications for health, physical and social sciences, and the humanities." Events for this year's Africa Week will take place both in-person and online.
The 2022 Africa Week will feature talks, seminars and events which interrogate how the arts and cultural production re(shape) the narratives and knowledge creation across disciplines including health, social sciences, and the humanities. This is a critical space through which African voice and agency has been platformed on a global scale. Through fashion, music, literature, art, photography and film many Africans have staked a claim on the global stage and have used these tools to engage in pertinent discourses. This theme connects with global ambition for centring creativity in socioeconomic transition and change with the UN declaration of 2021 as the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development.
