Africa Soft Power summit holds next month in Kigali
Africa Soft Power Summit will hold from May 23 to 27 in Kigali, Rwanda.
The Africa Soft Power Group’s (ASP) flagship event provides the biggest platform for the continent’s creative, knowledge and digital industries, bringing together public and private sector organisations, as well as pioneering individuals from the fields of law, finance, technology, sports, media, arts and entertainment, academia, philanthropy, politics and more.
Billed for Kigali Serena Hotel, the five-day programme is split into three segments: inaugural RAW Women’s Leadership Conference, Creative and Innovative Industries Conference and Africa Soft Power gala and awards.
Founder and Creative Director for Africa Soft Power, Nkiru Balonwu, said: “Across five days, three key events and a range of networking activities, we’ll see the spotlight shone on creative endeavour and its commercial viability, not only on the continent, but around the world.
“During a packed-out week, the creative and digital economies of tomorrow will meet with the financial and business powerhouses of today, together forming clear pathways to future economic success for our women, young people and the wider global community.
“Introduction of the inaugural RAW Women’s Conference is a particularly welcome addition to this year’s proceedings, and we are confident that more broadly, the often still largely unheard African voice – and those who join us from around the world – can examine new solutions to some of the key public and private sector issues of the day.”
