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..
