Infecting the City is presented by the Africa Centre.

Founded in 2005, the Africa Centre provides a platform for exploring contemporary Pan-African arts and cultural practice as a catalyst for social change. The Africa Centre’s has been structured to: formulate innovative models for presenting, debating and encouraging cultural production and the pursuit of knowledge; provide broad access to the creative work and ideas of historical and contemporary African thought leaders; and re-examine the role, identity, transience and creation of cultural expression.

Infecting the City is one of multiple Africa Centre projects, which include:

  • Artist in Residency Programme – in partnership, this project awards, across artistic disciplines, 10 residencies each year;
  • Badilisha Poetry X-Change – an online radio station that celebrates the languages, cultures and styles of Pan-African poetry;
  • Talking Heads – a multi–layered platform conceived to profile the ideas and manifestations of the extraordinary people living in Africa; and
  • WikiAfrica – an international collaboration that, through a range of interventions, redresses the critical imbalance of factual information about Africa on Wikipedia..

Public Arts Festival

6th - 10th March 2012

presented by The Africa Centre

Public art has always been part of who we are on this continent and in this country. The interconnectedness of the African “us” has often been impeded however, throwing people apart and far away from each other, creating a physical and psychic separation. Infecting the City is a small attempt at igniting this interconnectedness through artistic expression, making public space public.
