The Africa Centre is both a physical entity and ongoing philosophical journey that explores how Pan-African cultural practice can be a catalyst for social change.

We believe that creativity and innovation are powerful tools that manifest what otherwise would only sit in our imaginations, release new ideas and make them freely accessible, and ensure that people living on this soil can define for themselves what is possible and what their reality looks like. These beliefs are brought to life through a range of programmes in various countries as well as online. Our current programmes – Artists in Residency, Badilisha Poetry X-Change, Everyday African Urbanism, Infecting The City, Talking Heads, and WikiAfrica all celebrate and explore what it means to be in Africa today and what is conceivable for 21st century Africans.
