I am taking part in some stimulating events in the next couple of weeks that I thought I would share here.
On 25 May, I’ll be giving a talk at Trinity College Dublin’s annual conference to mark Africa Day. The conference will look at key issues in gender; movements towards equality for women and girls, barriers to gender equality, and how they can be overcome. My talk is titled “Oyalogy” – A poetic approach to African feminism”
On 3 June, I’m giving a keynote address at WOMEN AND DEVELOPMENT – Twenty years after Beijing: what’s changed and what’s the same?, part of the European Development Days (EDD15), which will take place from 3-4 June in Brussels. My talk is titled “From Empowerment to Repowerment”.
Lastly, I’m moderating a panel at Cambridge Union’s Africa Together conference on 5 June. This year’s Africa Together conference is themed: “Reimagining Africa.” The panel is titled “Arts, Culture and Heritage” and participants include Nana Ayebia Clarke MBE, Founder of Ayebia Clarke Publishing Limited, Touria El Glaoui, Founding Director of 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair and Yaba Badoe, Award-winning documentary filmmaker.
Look out for transcripts and discussions here on the blog and let me know if you have any questions.
