Fak'ugesi Digital Africa Conference, Johannesburg, South Africa 04 Dec 2014 - 07 Dec 2014
The Fak’ugesi Digital Africa Conference is aimed at creating a platform for research on the cross over of art, culture and technology in Africa and the world.
The Fak’ugesi Digital Africa Conference will be held from 4 -7 December in extension of Fak’ugesi Festival and proposes to reflect on the activities of the festival as well as present local and international research where technology, as a convergent form, intersects with socio-cultural, development and creative practices.
The Fak’ugesi: Digital Africa Festival is an umbrella event hosted by Wits University and the JoziHub in Johannesburg. The Festival is aimed at coordinating and curating a number of stand-alone conferences, exhibitions, workshops, short-courses and other activities in the inner city of Johannesburg that will promote the fusion of creative and technical development in Africa by “switching on the power” of digital culture. The primary activities for Fak’ugesi Digital Africa Festival took place in September 2014.
