This unprecedented African season focuses on the greatest challenges of the 21st century and is a laboratory for the production and dissemination of knowledge and ideas across the continent of Africa.
The first unveiled in a speech by French President Emmanuel Macron in 2017, the Africa2020 Season will bring together continent change makers and invite them to tell ‘their own story’ in their own words.
Spectators will be presented with more than 200 projects in the fields of art, science, technology, entrepreneurship and economics, while school children will also receive lessons on African history.
The Africa2020 Season is a multidisciplinary pan-Africa project focusing on innovation in the arts, sciences, technology, entrepreneurship and the economy. It will promote education as a tool for sharing and transferring knowledge.
The season will also look at mobility, paying tribute to women and addressing issues that are of paramount importance to young people. The ambition of the Africa2020 Season is to create a global emancipation movement through a sustainable commitment to build on the values of citizenship.
It presents the views of the civil society of the African continent on these issues and the recent diaspora in all sectors. It is also the sounding board for agents of change who are shaking up codes, experimenting with new relationships with the world and having an impact on contemporary societies.
Based on the principle of collective intelligence, the Africa2020 Season is an invitation to build meaning together to surpass all possible future.
