We have decided that RISE Africa will take on a new form this year!

This decision is primarily in response to implementing responsible and more sustainable practices in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead of hosting an international event in May 2020, RISE Africa will facilitate online showcases, local roundtables and thematic webinars, each of which will lead up to and build momentum towards RISE Africa 2021, confirmed for 24-26 May 2021.

These lead-up events will explore the key themes of RISE Africa with the same level of creative pursuit – using photography, art and videography exhibitions, and experimenting with virtual opportunities.

We will keep you updated as new plans emerge.
