Afrika Talks is a space created to celebrate and profile prominent Pan-African potentials. It will demonstrate the lavish African identity, accentuate its significance, and define what it means to be an African.
Afrika Talks is anchored on Arts, Culture, technology and conversations which offers young Africans an opportunity to engage on multiple platforms. Participants engage in a wide range of robust activities ranging from self-organized coverings, solidarity marches, music, cultural expressions and sports.
This includes introducing the great variety of African cultures, which add an incredible richness and depth to our continent. As well as displaying African potential, which we believe to be quite the inexhaustible resource and the ideal medium to counter hate speech, decrease youth radicalization, and ultimately bridge the gap between North Africa and Sub Saharan Africa. More than ever, Africa needs its youth to step up and take action in order to move forward.
The latter will emphasize the responsibilities we have as Young Africans to debunk and refute all the myths and misconceptions that are often unjustly associated with our beautiful continent.
“Afrika Talks”, not like any other public speaking platform, invests in the long lasting effect that original narratives leave on the listeners while giving the floor to African aspiring talents to share their passion.
