Royal African Society & British Council
The Arts Forum: Presenting Contemporary Voices and Creative Arts from Africa
The partnership event held by the Royal African Society and British Council, was aimed at increasing networks and sharing knowledge, expertise and connections between artists in the UK and African countries.
Attending the event were artists and cultural managers, working and living in sub Saharan Africa, as well as UK curators and programmers currently engaged or looking to engage with contemporary African creative arts.
People and organisations representing a wide range of art forms - including literature, film, performance, visual arts, design, fashion, and architecture - were invited to discuss and share their experiences of presenting contemporary African art to UK and international audiences.
