A CONFERENCE MADE IN AFRICA

For We Are Africa 2016, we wanted to assemble a set of speakers who truly understand what it means to be Made In Africa, regardless of where you’re from. A panel of African creatives told their stories alongside keynote talks from the Director of Virunga National Park, Emmanuel de Merode, and the owner of Segera, Jochen Zeitz.

You can relive their inspirational words or catch up by watching the videos below, filmed live at the 2016 Conference on 6 May at Cape Town City Hall.
